For some years we have made our database admin interface publicly available via the Ensembl “public-plugins” repository, allowing you to edit certain fields in your core databases via a web form. However we are now using an alternative interface developed by our production team (written in Python), and will therefore be retiring the old plugin in release 97 (scheduled for June 2019).

If you are currently using the plugin and would like to know more about migrating your project to the new code, please contact us and we’ll try to help!

Please note that the archive websites for Ensembl releases 71 (April 2013) and 72 (June 2013) will be retired in July when version 85 is released.

This is in accordance with our rolling retirement policy, whereby archives more than three years old are retired unless they include the last instance of the previous assembly from one of our key species (human, mouse and zebrafish).

For more information about how to use archives, please see our previous blog post on the topic; a list of all current archives is available on the main website.

Please note that the archive websites for Ensembl release 61 (Feb 2011) will be retired in February this year when version 75 is released.
