The Ensembl Genomes project at www.ensemblgenomes.org provides a comprehensive and integrated source of annotation of non-vertebrate genome sequences. In this one hour long session we will offer participants the possibility of gaining hands-on experience in the use of the Ensembl Genomes genome browser, exploring some of the data available for fungal, protist and bacterial species in Ensembl Genomes.


This course is aimed at wet-lab researchers and bioinformaticians - no previous knowledge of bioinformatics is required, but an undergraduate level understanding of biology may be beneficial.


After this course you should be able to:

  • Describe the different data types available in Ensembl Genomes
  • Access genomic data for different fungal, protist and bacterial species using the Ensembl Genomes genome browser
