Ensembl Genomes: Extending Ensembl across the taxonomic space

Ensembl Genomes provides services for genome-scale data from non-vertebrate species, primarily through the use of the Ensembl software platform. We integrate data from across the taxonomic space and collaborate closely with groups involved in genome annotation and the development of domain-specific resources.

Ensembl Genomes is primarily composed of five sites, for bacteria, protists, fungi, plants and invertebrate metazoa, enabling single collection of interactive and programmatic interfaces to be used for accessing and comparing genome-scale data from species of scientific interest from across the taxonomy.

Principal Investigator

  • Paul Kersey

    Paul Kersey did his Ph.D at the University of Edinburgh on the molecular biology and genetics of the cell cycle of fission yeast, and subsequently worked at the MRC Human Genetics Unit. Since 1999, Paul has worked at EMBL-EBI on various databases, including UniProt, GOA, Integr8, IPI, and Genome Reviews. He currently leads the Ensembl Genomes team.
