Sharing feature on the new mobile site (

We released the new Ensembl mobile site in release 82 and it’s already being used by our communities. has a slim-line functionality, designed to be a quick reference tool for genes, variants and associated phenotypes.


We hope you will find this useful if, for example, you’re on your mobile device at a conference, or you’re having coffee with a colleague and want to quickly look up something.

Each page features a share button Very-Basic-Share-icon , which gives you the option of posting the page to Facebook or Twitter, or emailing the URL to a colleague or even yourself so that you can explore the annotation in more detail on the desktop website when you get back to your computer.
