[genome-announce] New UCSC Genes track released for human genome GRCh38/hg38: "Hello Everyone,

We're happy to announce the release of a new UCSC Genes track for the

GRCh38/hg38 human Genome Browser. The new release has 104,178

transcripts, compared with 82,960 in the previous version on hg19. The

total number of canonical genes has increased from 31,848 to 48,424.

Comparing the new gene set with the previous version:

* 69,691 transcripts did not change between versions.

* 619 transcripts were not carried forward to the new version.

* 8,879 transcripts are 'compatible' with those in the previous set,

meaning that the two transcripts show consistent splicing.

* 3,393 transcripts overlap with those in the previous set.

More details about the new UCSC Genes track can be found on the UCSC

Genes track description page: Gene
