I want to add my data and view it in Ensembl

If you have genomic coordinates, you can use the Add Your Data tool button to display your features in Ensembl. Popular pages for this are region in detail, region overview, and the karyotype.  Alternatively, if you have sequence variants you may want to analyse them with our Variant Effect Predictor(VEP) tool.

Either upload a file, attach data using a url, or, create and attach a DAS source. If you have uploaded or attached data to Ensembl already, the Add Your Data button will change to Manage Your Data.

There are many supported file formats you can use, namely BED, BedGraph, GFF/GTF, PSL, WIG, and our newest allowed format BAM for sequencing reads. The EBI provides an easydas interface to create a DAS source (without having to know any programming).

Did you know you can share your customised view with collaborators?  Free registration allows you to log in and save your data for access from any computer.

Have a look at these upload exercises to go through some examples of viewing your own data in Ensembl.
