Updated CH assembly and CH/CHO-K1 annotations

May 1, 2019

We are excited to announce that the significantly improved Chinese hamster genome, CH PICR (GCF_00366804.1), along with its 2018 RefSeq annotation is now online. In addition, an updated RefSeq annotation for the CHO-K1 cell line is now available. Both can be searched (gene search and BLAST) and viewed on JBrowse. More information on the updated Chinese hamster genome can be found here.

New mRNA Expression Browser (Beta)

June 7, 2017

The browser (beta version) for the visualization of mRNA expression from CHO-K1 cells is now online. The data is from several published DNA-microarray or RNA-Seq experiments. The tutorial on how to use this browser can be found here.

Coming Soon!

March 10, 2017

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.

Search CHO-K1 GenBank

Search CHO-K1 GenBank (2011) assembly by accession number, gene name, symbol, or GO Term:

This genome assembly corresponds to the CriGri_1.0 genome assembly released in August 2011 (GenBank Assembly ID GCA_000223135.1).

The CHO-K1 GenBank database can be searched by:

  1. Accession number (i.e. EGV99227)
  2. Gene name or symbol (i.e.Transcription factor E2F3 or E2F3)
  3. GO term (i.e. GO:0003700 or Transcription factor activity)

There are currently 24,240 entries in the database. To display all database records, use % in the search field.

BLAST the CHO-K1 genome here and at NCBI.
