Genome information resources - developments at Ensembl

Trends Genet. 2004 Jun;20(6):268-72. doi: 10.1016/j.tig.2004.04.002.


Genome information resources such as Ensembl manage and present DNA sequence and annotation arising from genome projects. Recent developments in the Ensembl system include access to inter-species comparisons at both the genomic and protein sequence levels and improvements to the display of polymorphism data. Users can now display their own data in the context of other annotation. In addition, a fast and flexible data retrieval system, EnsMart, has been developed.
