Browsing plant and pathogen genomes with Ensembl Genomes

27 June 2013, 9:30-17:00

Instructor: Bert Overduin (EBI)


Chris Lamb Training Suite,
The Genome Analysis Centre (TGAC)
Norwich Research Park
Norwich, NR4 7UH, UK

The Ensembl genome annotation system, developed jointly by the EBI and the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, has been used for the annotation, analysis, and display of vertebrate genomes since 2000.  Since 2009, the Ensembl site has been complemented by the creation of five new sites for bacteria, protists, fungi, plants and invertebrate metazoa, enabling users to access a single collection of interactive interfaces for accessing and comparing genome-scale data from species of scientific interest across taxonomy.

This one-day, hands-on course will explore the EBI's Ensembl Genomes Browser at in order to explore genes, sequence variation, and other data for plants and pathogens. New users and those who wish to deepen their understanding of the data and navigation behind the Ensembl Genomes Browser are welcome.

Note: This is not an API course, and will focus on the browser and BioMart, and is targeted at wet-lab scientists.

Registrations are on a first come first served basis.

Training Material: Presentation slides, exercises
