Since release 81, Ensembl has provided the gene annotations in GFF3 files alongside the already existing GTF ones. While GTF uses its own controlled vocabulary to classify features, GFF3 takes advantage of sequence ontology. In the initial release, we attempted Continue reading GFF3 and Sequence Ontology terms

The CRISPR/Cas9 system has revolutionised scientific research over the last few years, offering an efficient method of genome editing. CRISPR/Cas9 utilises the cellular machinery used by bacteria to recognise and edit the DNA of invading viruses. It is formed of two key components: Continue reading Find predicted CRISPR sites using Ensembl
