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.
