Come learn about Fungal Pathogen genomics!

Our next annual advanced course on fungal pathogen genomics will be in May 2019. This course brings together bioinformaticians, biologists, clinicians and computer scientists from around the world wanting to use fungal data resources. Come join us! Application and bursary deadline is 7th February 2019. See details and registration.

Help improve the Zymoseptoria tritici gene set

The gene set for Zymoseptoria tritici, a wheat plant pathogen causing septoria leaf blotch, is currently under review by a team of Z. tritici researchers. This is a collaborative effort supported by EnsemblFungi with the aim of consolidating and improving the existing gene sets. If you would like to get involved, please contact Marc-Henri Lebrun from the National Institute of Agricultural Research (INRA) in France (marc-henri.lebrun@inra.fr) or helpdesk@ensemblgenomes.org to get started.

New archive site

Find all the data from release 40 of EnsembProtists at eg40-protists.ensembl.org (July 2018).

Ensembl Protists

Ensembl Protists is a browser for protist genomes. A majority of these are taken from the databases of the International Nucleotide Sequence Database Collaboration (the European Nucleotide Archive at the EBI, GenBank at the NCBI, and the DNA Database of Japan); in some cases, the annotation has been taken directly from the websites of the data generators. Data can be visualised through the Ensembl genome browser and accessed programmatically via our Perl and RESTful APIs. Data is also accessible through public MySQL databases and our FTP site containing full data dumps in FASTA, EMBL, GTF, GFF3, JSON and RDF formats.

Ensembl Genomes is developed by EMBL-EBI and is powered by the Ensembl software system for the analysis and visualisation of genomic data. For details of our funding please click here.
