Resource:Ensembl

Name: Resource:Ensembl
Description: Freely available genome databases for vertebrates and other eukaryotic species. Users can browse or search genomes as well as DNA and protein sequences. The site also links to the Ensembl blog with updates on new species and sequences as they are added to the database.

Their goal is to automatically annotate the genome, integrate this annotation with other available biological data and make all this publicly available via the web. The range of available data has also expanded to include comparative genomics, variation and regulatory data.

Ensembl allows you to:

  • Upload and analyze your data and save it to your Ensembl account
  • Search for a DNA or protein sequence using BLAST or BLAT
  • Fetch only the data you want from the public database, using the Perl API
  • Download the databases via FTP in FASTA, MySQL and other formats
  • Mine Ensembl with BioMart and export sequences or tables in text, HTML, or Excel format

The DNA sequences and assemblies used in the Ensembl genebuild are provided by various projects around the world

Ensembl has entered into an agreement with UCSC and NCBI with regard to sequence identifiers in order to improve consistency between the data provided by different genome browsers.[1]

This resource will be curated within 7 days.

For Resource Owners:
After the resource is curated, you may create a sitemap, which will help keep your registry description up-to-date and inform search engines about your resource.

Note: For a new resource, the website's URL must first be verified by a NIF curator before you may proceed.
