How to retrieve gene family data (alignment data is better) in Ensembl database? I just want to get fish species whole genome-wide gene family data. Appreciate it!
Your question is very ambiguous. Please try to more specific so that we can help.
it works just like any API, you have to program a little bit to get things. In general, it looks like a perl interface to mysql databases (so if you know perl DBI, it works just like that). Here is the tutorial: http://useast.ensembl.org/info/docs/api/compara/compara_tutorial.html
I think ensembl compara has an API but I never used it before. That might be what you want.
Yes. I know API can do this job. But I don't know how to use API.
Thank you so much.
If you prefer to flat files, we also provide EMF dumps in Ensembl:
EMF is a column-based multiple alignment format. Read more on this at:
