New ENCODE portal launched at www.encodeproject.org
The website for up-to-date information about the ENCODE project is no
longer hosted at genome.ucsc.edu/ENCODE.
Those UCSC ENCODE pages now archive information and tools from the ENCODE
production and pilot phases (2003 to 2012) including live links to visualize and download data.
Please navigate to the new ENCODE portal for recent data releases. Along with the ability to use
faceted searching to explore all ENCODE data, the ENCODE portal provides visualization
in the UCSC Genome Browser via a "Visualize Data" link on assay pages when
processed data files are available.

Data from the FaceBase Consortium Now Available in the Genome Browser
We are pleased to announce that much of the data from the FaceBase Consortium is now available in the UCSC Genome Browser as a
public track hub. This track hub contains data from numerous experiments carried out by
the Potter and Visel labs to study craniofacial development in mice and humans, with
tracks for the mm9, mm10, hg18, and hg19 assemblies. You can check out the hub on the
here. In addition to this public track hub, we have a set of
microarray expression data hosted as a native track for both the mm9 and mm10 assemblies.
This expression data compares expression across the mouse genome for a number of embryonic
days and craniofacial cell types. For more information on this track, please see the track
We would like to thank Robert Kuhn, Pauline Fujita, and Matthew Speir from UCSC and Thomas
Maher from the FaceBase Consortium for their efforts in bringing these resources to the
UCSC Genome Browser.
