The current site pgpviewer.ensembl.org will no longer be maintained and is now replaced by geval.sanger.ac.uk.
The functionality of the new site is pretty much the same as pgpviewer, but rebranded with some new features and updates.
These updates include assembly builds not added in the past few months during this transition, such as:
the latest zebrafish freeze.
An updated walkthrough documentation.
As always, any questions, comments feel free to contact us.
gEVAL Team formerly known as PGPviewer Team.
Its now up, from a path freeze from last week October 3rd.
Jo W - the fpc_ctg dumps per chromosomes are available in the usual farm_temp directory under zfish_20131003, and will now be implemented every build.
Any questions, issues please let me know.
There seems to be some issues with caching and writing to the new database machine for PGP viewer. At the current moment, anyone who tries to configure tracks, will not work (it was working before b/c it was reading old data user sessions/records).
So in the meantime the current public pages are not working for configuration.
I will provide a link to my sandbox pgpviewer which uses another machine that houses the database within the next 15 mins while I try to resolve the public pages.
Sorry for the inconvenience
Just a reminder the PGPViewer will be at risk tomorrow morning (Thursday Aug 29). The at risk period will begin at 8am BST and last until roughly 9am BST. During this time, maintenance and a transition of the system to a new server will occur. This may limit and/or shutdown much of the PGPViewer services.
Any questions and concerns, please let me know.
Since the entire Sanger farm system infrastructure has been at risk or down the last two weeks, it might be the perfect time to join the fun. The machine that houses the PGPviewer databases is due for a migration/upgrade to a new machine. Much of the work has already been completed so whats left is some minor changes to the code to point to the new location and the flipping of the switch.
Because of this, I propose to have this switchover this Friday morning around 11'ish GMT. I don't expect any issues and it should be seamless, but just in case its good to let you know.
For GRIT'ers: I chose this date, because it appears on the calendar that many people will be away, so disruptions should be kept at a minimal.
If you have any issues with this date/time let me know, otherwise I will liase with DBA and the Networking team so they can handle the switchover.
A zebrafish PGPViewer build based on the TPF freeze on April 3rd is now up. This includes the PGP compara analysis as well.
A heads up, gene names for mapped cdnas will be added shortly for this build.
Any questions, comments, issues, please let me know.
