Genomics resources at the EBI
This section will introduce you to the genomics resources at the EBI (Figure 1.2).
The resources include:
- Ensembl and Ensembl Genomes
Ensembl provides a genome browser with information such as gene sequence, splice variants, sequence polymorphisms, comparative analysis and sequences implicated in gene regulation for mostly vertebrate genomes.
- European Nucleotide Archive (ENA) provides a comprehensive record of the world's nucleotide sequencing information, covering raw sequencing data, sequence assembly information and functional annotation. ENA consists of three main databases: the Sequence Read Archive (SRA), the Trace Archive and EMBL-Bank.
- European Genome-phenome Archive (EGA) is a service for permanent archiving and sharing of all types of genetic and phenotypic data resulting from biomedical research projects.
