We've updated the Hyalella azteca i5k Workspace resources to the newest genome assembly, Hazt_2.0.1 (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/assembly/GCA_000764305.3), and Official Gene Set, OGSv1.2 (ftp://ftp.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/genomes/all/GCA/000/764/305/GCA_000764305.3_Hazt_2.0.1https://data.nal.usda.gov/dataset/hyalella-azteca-official-gene-set-v12). Now Apollo and BLAST are based on these new data resources. New gene pages for OGSv1.2 are also available. 

Our next i5k Workspace webinar will be October 29th at 1pm MDT (rescheduled from October 22nd).
