New content at the i5k Workspace: three new organisms, and five organism updates

Three new organisms are available at the i5k Workspace, and five additional organisms have been updated to the latest genome assembly.

New organisms:

  • Bradysia coprophila (genome assembly GCF_014529535.1 and NCBI Annotation Release 100)
  • Lucilia sericata (genome assembly GCF_015586225.1 and NCBI Annotation Release 100)
  • Venturia canescens (genome assembly GCF_019457755.1 and NCBI Annotation Release 100)

Updated organisms:

  • Drosophila elegans (update from GCF_000224195.1 to GCF_018152505.1)
  • Drosophila eugracilis (update from GCF_000236325.1 to GCF_018153835.1)
  • Drosophila kikkawai (update from GCF_000224215.1 to GCF_018152505.1)
  • Ladona fulva (update from Baylor College of Medicine assembly Lful_2.0)
  • Rhipicephalus microplus (update from Rmi_v2.0 to ASM1333972v1)

New and updated organism, dataset, and gene pages (; browsers with mapped RNA-Seq (; file downloads, including functional annotations (; and BLAST databases ( are available. Apollo registration for all organisms can be accessed at

For updated genomes, file downloads and dataset pages of the older assemblies and annotations are still available, and are archived at the Ag Data Commons ( and NCBI GenBank where appropriate.
