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.
Citing Ensembl Genomes
If you've used Ensembl Genomes in your work, please cite the most recent overview article below and the Ensembl Genomes release you retrieved your data from. References for the specific genome assembly can be found on the More information and statistics page for each species (e.g. Saccharomyces cerevisiae).
