The Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences and Engineering (GSBSE) the Maine INBRE Network are hosting a day-long bioinformatics workshop on the Ensembl genome browser at the University of Maine on November 15. Ensembl ([ http://www.ensembl.org/ ]http://www.ensembl.org) is the world’s most comprehensive genome browser that provides automatic annotation of genes and other features in the human, zebrafish and mouse genomes. They also provide similar information for many metazoan, plant, bacterial, protist and fungal genomes ([ http://ensemblgenomes.org ]http://ensemblgenomes.org). Dr. Bert Overduin from Project Ensembl at the European Bioinformatics Institute (Hinxton, UK) will be teaching the workshop.
