Can I use a different species or assembly?

GREAT only supports one assembly of the well-annotated human (hg18) and mouse (mm9) genomes. If you have genomic regions defined for a different species or assembly from the ones we currently support, you can use the UCSC LiftOver utility to convert to a supported assembly. The LiftOver typically works very well for within-species coordinate conversion (i.e. hg17 to hg18g. from one human assembly to another), but it can also be used as a best approximation of mapping regions in one genome to the orthologous regions of a genome for a different species (e.g., from chimpanzee to human), although more caution is obviously advised in these cases.
