I’ve paraphrased an email sent by David Carter to folks interested in Saccharomyces resequencing project.

This release is somewhat provisional, and motivated more by the fact that we have a paper deadline coming up than by any claim to finality. It should be quite a bit better than what was there before, but doesn’t have a correct treatment of transposons.

There is also a new version of the browser:
There are a few new features in the browser which [David] is going to document over the next couple of days.
Major new features of the data are that there should be much better consistency between alignments; Solexa/Illumina data has been incorporated for the strains that had it; and the S. paradoxus alignments are based on a new assembly that created a few weeks ago and which covers about 95% of the genome; a description is at
