What is the use of Ensembl software?

What is the use of Ensembl software?

Ensembl (http://www.ensembl.org/) is a bioinformatics project to organize biological information around the sequences of large genomes. It is a comprehensive source of stable automatic annotation of individual genomes, and of the synteny and orthology relationships between them.

What databases are used for comparative genomics?

Three major resources are currently available for preprocessed human/mouse whole-genome comparisons: UCSC Genome Browser, VISTA Genome Browser, and PipMaker (Table ​1). The UCSC Genome Browser has recently integrated comparative sequence information for annotation of the human genome.

What is VEP Ensembl?

The Ensembl VEP is a powerful tool that allows you to input a list of genetic variants and determines which genes are affected and how.

How do you get gene sequence from Ensembl?

To export gene sequence, click the ‘Export Data’ button in the left hand menu. In the resulting window, choose ‘Deselect all’, which will not deselect the gene sequence. Click ‘Next’ to export the sequence.

How the data found in Ensembl can be used to research?

The Ensembl BLAST-Like Alignment Tool (BLAT; Kent, 2002) is used to position a short oligonucleotide sequence within the human genome, allowing identification of variations and genes (the MYC gene) corresponding to this sequence. The focus of this protocol is on location views, showing a region of the genome.

What is Ensembl Genome Browser?

Ensembl provides a genome browser that acts as a single point of access to annotated genomes for mainly vertebrate species (Video 1 and Figure 2). Information about genes, transcripts and further annotation can be retrieved at the genome, gene and protein level.

How do I download promoter sequence from Ensembl?

go to ensembl website: http://www.ensembl.org/index.html. choose an organism such as human http://www.ensembl.o…iens/Info/Index. Search your gene such as BRCA2 http://www.ensembl.o…ns;idx=;q=brca2. Click the right hit on the search result page and it will bring you to the gene summary page.

What is the difference between NCBI and GenBank?

GenBank is built and distributed by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), a division of the National Library of Medicine (NLM), located on the campus of the US National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, MD, USA.

Is GenBank part of NCBI?

GenBank is part of the International Nucleotide Sequence Database Collaboration, which comprises the DNA DataBank of Japan (DDBJ), the European Nucleotide Archive (ENA), and GenBank at NCBI.
