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.
2012 Bioprocess International Awards Ceremony
October 9, 2012
The international community's effort was recognized at the 2012 Bioprocess International Awards ceremony in Providence, RI, held on October 9th, 2012. CHOgenome.org was nominated as one of three finalists for the Upstream Collaboration of the Decade Award. "The Collaboration of the Decade Award recognizes industry alliances and collaborations whose innovative partnerships dramatically transformed stand-alone technologies. These collaborations result in overall process cost reduction while creating new, effective approaches to biopharmaceutical design, development, and manufacturing."
We are grateful and would like to recognize the support and engagement of the broad international community in the sequencing of CHO and related genomes to improve bioprocessing.
