PhytoPath

BBSRC Logo

PhytoPath is a joint project between EMBL-EBI and Rothamsted Research, funded by the BBSRC, linking genomic and phenotoypic data of fungal and oomycete plant pathogens.

Ensembl Genomes is developed by EMBL-EBI and is powered by the Ensembl software system for the analysis and visualisation of genomic data. For details of our funding please click here. For information on how to cite Ensembl Genomes click here.

Future Releases

Release 37 of Ensembl Genomes is scheduled for 22nd August 2017. For more details, see the release intentions.

Ensembl Fungi

Ensembl Fungi is a browser for fungal genomes. A majority of these are taken from the databases of the International Nucleotide Sequence Database Collaboration (the European Nucleotide Archive at the EBI, GenBank at the NCBI, and the DNA Database of Japan); in some cases, the annotation has been taken directly from the websites of the data generators.

Data access

Data can be visualised through the Ensembl genome browser and accessed programmatically via our Perl and RESTful APIs. Data is also accessible through public MySQL databases and our FTP site containing full data dumps in FASTA, EMBL, GTF, GFF3, JSON and RDF formats.

Citing Ensembl Genomes

If you've used Ensembl Genomes in your work, please cite the most recent overview article below and the Ensembl Genomes release you retrieved your data from. References for the specific genome assembly can be found on the More information and statistics page for each species (e.g., Saccharomyces cerevisiae).
