Vertebrate Genomics Team - Databases and Services
A list of the databases and services the Vertebrate Genomics Team is involved in:
Ensembl Genome Browser (http://www.ensembl.org)
Ensembl is a joint project between the EMBL-EBI and the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute that aims at developing a system that maintains automatic annotation of large eukaryotic genomes. Access to all the software and data is free and without constraints of any kind. The project is primarily funded by the Wellcome Trust. It is a comprehensive source of stable annotation with confirmed gene predictions that have been integrated from external data sources. Ensembl annotates known genes and predicts new ones, with functional annotation from InterPro, OMIM, SAGE and gene families.
European Genotype Archive Repository (http://www.ebi.ac.uk/ega/)
The European Genotype Archive (EGA) is designed to be a repository for all types of genotype experiments, including case control, population, and family studies. We will include SNP and CNV genotypes from array based methods and genotyping done with re-sequencing methods. This data may be either both publicly available or limited access depending on the design of the study.
