New UCSC Genome Browser Hubs, Assemblies

The genome browser group at the University of California, Santa Cruz has added two new hubs to the collection of publicly available hubs for the UCSC Genome Browser. The Peptide Evidences hub provides data from the analyses of eight large-scale proteomics datasets generated by Spanish National Cancer Research Center. These databases cover a large range of tissues and cell types. The Peterhof Yeast hub, from Saint Petersburg State University, hosts assemblies of several Saccharomyces cerevisiae strains from the Peterhof genetic collection and single nucleotide variation tracks from the SacCer3 genome assembly.

The group has also added two new assemblies to the browser: a new mouse lemur assembly and a new platypus assembly.
