What is BioMart Ensembl?

What is BioMart Ensembl?

Ensembl BioMart shows results for protein-coding genes when protein-associated attributes are chosen. Non-coding genes that pass filters will not be shown in the results if certain protein-associated attributes are chosen.

What is BioMart R?

biomaRt provides an interface to a growing collection of databases implementing the BioMart software suite ( ). The package enables retrieval of large amounts of data in a uniform way without the need to know the underlying database schemas or write complex SQL queries.

What is Ensembl used for?

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.

Is Ensembl a database?

Ensembl genome database project is a scientific project at the European Bioinformatics Institute, which was launched in 1999 in response to the imminent completion of the Human Genome Project….Ensembl genome database project.

What is Ensembl gene ID?

An Ensembl stable ID consists of five parts: ENS(species)(object type)(identifier). (version). The first part, ‘ENS’, tells you that it’s an Ensembl ID. The second part is a three-letter species code. For human, there is no species code so IDs are in the form ENS(object type)(identifier).

What is an Ensembl number?

What is plant GDB?

PlantGDB (http://www.plantgdb.org/) is a database of molecular sequence data for all plant species with significant sequencing efforts. The database organizes EST sequences into contigs that represent tentative unique genes.

What is gene number?

In humans, genes vary in size from a few hundred DNA bases to more than 2 million bases. An international research effort called the Human Genome Project, which worked to determine the sequence of the human genome and identify the genes that it contains, estimated that humans have between 20,000 and 25,000 genes.

How do I read Ensembl ID?


  1. The first part, ‘ENS’, tells you that it’s an Ensembl ID.
  2. The second part is a three-letter species code.
  3. The third part is a one- or two-letter object type.
  4. The identifier is the number to that object.
  5. Versions indicate how many times that model has changed during its time in Ensembl.

What is the meaning of Bioconductor?

Bioconductor is an open source and open development software project for computation biology, based on R programming Language see “Relevant Websites section”.

How do I find my Ensembl ID?

Choose “Ensembl Transcript ID(s)” and paste your ID(s) or upload a file of IDs. Click “Attributes” (left menu) and expand GENE. Check Ensembl Gene ID, Transcript ID and Protein ID. Click “Results” (top left menu)

What is GBS data?

In the field of genetic sequencing, genotyping by sequencing, also called GBS, is a method to discover single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP) in order to perform genotyping studies, such as genome-wide association studies (GWAS). GBS uses restriction enzymes to reduce genome complexity and genotype multiple DNA samples.

How do you use a Phytozome?

Go back to one of Gene Pages (click thru on a transcript in Gbrowse), select the sequences tab, and then click “BLAST this sequence PHYTOZOME” to load the BLAST interface. Figure 24. BLAST interface. Genome targets (both unmasked and, where available, masked) can be selected from the set of Phytozome organisms.
