Getting data from Ensembl Genomes

Ensembl Genomes provides access through a variety of interfaces, including a graphical web browser  with text and sequence search, an FTP server, a Perl interface for programmatic access, and a public mySQL server. Additionally, Ensembl Genomes data is provided in a search-optimised data warehouse (BioMart) that provides facilities for fast, customisable download and analysis. You can link searches between different BioMarts in separate locations, allowing you to combine Ensembl Genomes data with information from external resources, and to construct searches across the genomes of different taxonomic groups.
