The Ensembl Browser workshop is an introductory workshop aimed at wet-lab scientists and bioinformaticians who are new to using Ensembl. This workshop is also suitable for scientists who are familiar with Ensembl, but would like to refresh their knowledge and learn more about Ensembl. The workshop will cover accessing data using the Ensembl genome browser web-interface.

The only prerequisites for this workshop are general knowledge of molecular biology and genomics, a laptop with a web browser (preferably Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox) and stable internet connection.

This workshop will be led by Dr. Louisse Paola Mirabueno, Ensembl Outreach Officer from the European Bioinformatics Institute, European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL-EBI) and is hosted by the Cancer Cell Map Initiative (
