Ensembl is currently down due to a power outage in the data centre at the Sanger Institute last night. Power has been restored, but it will take some time to restore all of the services.

We are working to get things up and running and expect that Ensembl will be back mid to late morning UK time.

Ensembl is currently migrating to new hardware in conjunction to the development of new webcode for the next release (due in late September). During this period, and due to some technical issues, there might be some downtime of our website. We apologise for any problems this may cause and we are working to minimise its impact in Ensembl.

The Ensembl Team

For the past two days, Ensembl has been slow or has not returned the page (instead offering an ‘Ensembl is down’ yellow screen).

Be assured we are working on the problem. It is a hardware issue, but should be resolved soon.

From all of us in the Ensembl team, thanks for your patience!
