We provide a number of ready-made tools for processing both our data and yours. We routinely delete results from our servers after 10 days, but if you have an ensembl account you will be able to save the results indefinitely.
Processing your data
|Variant Effect Predictor
|Analyse your own variants and predict the functional consequences of known and unknown variants via our Variant Effect Predictor (VEP) tool.
|Translate a variant identifier, HGVS notation or genomic SPDI notation to all possible variant IDs, HGVS, VCF format and genomic SPDI.
|Maximun 1000 variants recommended
|Search our genomes for your DNA or protein sequence.
|Convert Ensembl files for use with other analysis tools
|Map (liftover) your data's coordinates to the current assembly.
|ID History Converter
|Convert a set of Ensembl IDs from a previous release into their current equivalents.
|Linkage Disequilibrium Calculator
|Calculate LD between variants using genotypes from a selected population.
|VCF to PED converter
|Parse a vcf file to create a linkage pedigree file (ped) and a marker information file, which together may be loaded into ld visualization tools like Haploview.
|Get a subset of data from a BAM or VCF file.
Accessing Ensembl data
