Each site contains data for selected species from their domain, chosen for their scientific interest.
Information is available about each species, including the assembly version and annotation methods used, the overall composition of the genome
Statement of Need In response to the need of creating annotated genome databases To represent the best annotation for every genome THRO UGH Working with all sections of the relevant scientific community The browser offers a number of views of locations in the genome, genes, and specific transcripts location view for a region of a chromosome gene view transcript view
Statement of Need Main functionality
Portals offer access to a graphical view of each genome, using the Ensembl genome browser software.

Methods of Data Retrieval
Ensembl Genomes data is available through
BioMart data warehousing system ( API ) Perl These interfaces are supported by a number of relational ( MySQL ) (RDBMS) database schemas “ efficient high-level access “ That run as a server providing multi-user access to Core databases describing sequence, features and stable identifiers Additional databases for other certain types of data
Map your data to the current assembly.
ID History Converter
Convert a set of Ensembl IDs from
a previous release into their current equivalents.
Variant Effect Predictor
(Formerly SNP Effect Predictor)
This tool takes a list of variant positions and alleles, and predicts the effects of each of these on any overlapping features (transcripts, regulatory features) annotated in Ensembl.
Search for a certain gene
We will get a list of the matched gene in different species
At the top of the page there are 3 tabs
Graphical alignment of gene of interest
The gene of interest highlighted against the genomic contig
