We’re fortunate to be part of the EMBL European Bioinformatics Institute (EBI), which puts us alongside stellar bioinformaticians and resources in every discipline. From this, great collaborations can grow. We’ve already worked with our colleagues at Gene Expression Atlas and Reactome to embed widgets in Ensembl for viewing baseline gene expression and biochemical pathways respectively, but our latest collaboration is with the Protein Data Bank in Europe (PDBe) to show genetic variation on protein structures.
Did you know you can upload your own data for display alongside the reference genomes in Ensembl? For some file types, and files larger than 20MB in size you will need to create a URL to attach the data, rather than uploading from your local directory. It’s not difficult to create these URLs, but there are quite a few steps, so read on to find out how!
As of Ensembl release 93, which is due at the end of the month, the Gene Variant Image view will be retired for human. We have elected to retire this page because we feel that the density of known genetic variation is too great for this view to be informative in its current form.
