Figure 8. The navigation of the Ensembl website is divided into tabs, or summary pages. Note: to get this figure, we opened all the possible tabs by clicking on a specific transcript, variant and regulatory feature. Normally, after searching for a gene, you see only the location and gene tabs.
The location tab (Location: 7:114,414,997-114,693,768). The location tab allows viewing of a region, including genes in that area, variations, regulatory regions, along with over a hundred different data types.
The gene tab (Gene: FOXP2). This contains all the information associated at the gene level. For example, the genomic sequence for the FOXP2 gene will be found in the gene tab.
The transcript tab (Transcript: FOXP2-210). This tab contains transcript-level information, for example the cDNA sequence and position of untranslated regions (UTRs).
The variation tab (Variant: rs181717058). The variation tab is focused on a SNP, an indel, a somatic mutation or a structural variant. Find population frequencies, alleles and associated phenotypes and diseases in this tab.
The jobs tab (Jobs). Any jobs submitted to Ensembl tools can be accessed here.
