Users will be able to visualize CHO cell mRNA expression data either from published DNA-microarray or RNA-Seq experiments via JBrowse. The visualized data will enable users to easily obtain gene expression levels and compare gene expression levels among different conditions.

CHOmine, the InterMine site for CHO and Chinese hamster, went online on August 11, 2016 at https://chomine.boku.ac.at/. CHOmine collects and integrates publicly available Chinese hamster and CHO data, where different datasets are connected to provide user-friendly access. Currently, users are asked to test the site and to provide feedback (impressions, comments, issues, and suggestions for improvements) to Matthias.Gerstl@acib.at or Nicole.Borth@boku.ac.at.
CHO Epigenomic Data
April 14, 2016
A new database of epigenomic information (cho-epigenome.boku.ac.at) for 6 CHO cell lines has been created by Dr. Nicole Borth's group. A link to this database has been added to CHOgenome.org's Data webpage. The epigenomic database website hosts genome sequences for 6 cell lines, SNPs, structural variants, full genome methylation data, and batch culture histone modification data. The manuscript describing the acquisition and analysis of the data can be found here.

Omics Workshop Summary
Over 170 participants attended the workshop led by Susan Sharfstein, Kelvin Lee, and Mike Betenbaugh. The workshop opened with an overview of genome-scale technologies applicable to CHO cells such as expression profiling, proteomics, and metabolomics. This was followed by an overview of the tools being developed at www.CHOgenome.org and presentation of case study examples of how to use these tools. The workshop concluded with an interactive discussion of next steps for the CHO community.
