The Ensembl project provides a comprehensive and integrated source of annotation of mainly vertebrate genome sequences.
This workshop is aimed at researchers and developers interested in exploring Ensembl beyond the website. The workshop covers the core, compara, variation and functional genomics (regulation) databases and APIs. The Ensembl Perl API Documentation can be found here.
For each of these, the database schema and the API design as well as the most important objects and their methods will be presented. This will be followed by practical sessions in which the participants can put theoretical learning into practice by writing their own Perl scripts.
