The AlphaFold AI system developed by DeepMind predicts a protein’s 3D structure from its amino acid sequence. You can now view variant locations on AlphaFold predicted structures in the Ensembl VEP web tool.Continue reading

Together with the neXtProt team, we’ve created a plugin for the command-line VEP tool to retrieve and report information about the protein location of missense and stop gained variants.Continue reading
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.
