The Ensembl project has focused on vertebrate organisms for the past ten years. Since Jan 2009, a sister project has formed, Ensembl Genomes, extending analysis to invertebrates, protists, plants, fungi and bacteria.
We do now offer separate workshops on both Ensembl and Ensembl Genomes. Though the browsing is similar, specifics can vary. For example, the genes in most non-vertebrate genomes are determined using different rules than in vertebrate genomes.
So, if you are thinking of hosting a browser workshop and you know your audience will mainly consist of researchers working on non-vertebrate genomes, the Ensembl Genomes browser is the right choice for you!
