Ensembl REST API workshop



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 using the REST API to query the core, variation, compara and functional genomics (regulation) databases. 



  • Bioinformaticians and wet-lab biologists who can program
  • Some basic programming experience is a prerequisite for the course. The REST API works for any language, but in the workshop we can only offer assistance to PERL and Python programmers
  • Beginner and regular users of the Ensembl API are welcome
