This workshop forms part of the Variant Effect Prediction Training Course (VEPTC) 2019. Registration and attendance at the VEPTC 2019 is required to attend the Ensembl workshop session.

Course Overview

The Ensembl project at provides a comprehensive and integrated source of annotation of mainly vertebrate genome sequences. This short 1.5 hour workshop offers participants the possibility of gaining hands-on experience of using the Ensembl genome browser to access variation data and using the Variant Effect Predictor (VEP) to analyse the functional consequences of variants.


Wet-lab scientists and bioinformaticians

Learning outcomes

Participants should be able to:

  • Describe the data types in Ensembl
  • View variation data in the Ensembl browser
  • Analyse variants using the Variant Effect Predictor (VEP)
