In case you missed it, Friday evening this piece came over the ENCODE announcement mailing list:
Today marks the end of 5 years of ENCODE whole-genome data production,
and the project is now transitioning to a new phase. The newly
constituted project has been announced by NHGRI in the press release
Although UCSC will continue to participate actively in ENCODE data
management, we will be doing so in a new role — working in conjunction
with the new ENCODE Data Coordination Center at Stanford, under the
leadership of Michael Cherry as PI and Eurie Hong as project manager.
UCSC will be working closely with Stanford as the project ramps up.
See the whole item for further details. And it sounds like if you are on this mailing list you will be transitioned to the new one. But I wanted to give the heads-up to folks who might not be on this mailing list as a public service.
