Summary

  • Genomics is the study of the entire genome of organisms, in contrast to genetics, in which single genes are studied;
  • Ensembl and Ensembl Genomes provide databases with information on genomes from different species. The difference between the two is that Ensembl collects information on vertebrate genomes; Ensembl Genomes extends these information to invertebrate metazoa, protists, bacteria, plants and fungi;
  • The European Nucleotide Archive (ENA) provides a comprehensive, accessible and publicly available repository for nucleotide sequence data;
  • The European Genome-phenome Archive (EGA) is a permanent repository for all types of potentially identifiable genetic and phenotypic data from biomedical research projects. The EGA contains data collected from individuals who have given consent for its use in research, but not for open public distribution.
