I am working on a species that is not found on Ensembl, Folsomia candida (Metazoa / Arthropoda). However, it is in the NCBI database, UniProt and KEGG. How are new species admitted to the Ensembl database?
I have not been able to find the answer, sorry if their is something fundamental that I do not understand of the database.
Ensembl Genomes imports genome assemblies with sufficient quality and their annotation from ENA.
Please contact us at helpdesk[at]ensemblgenomes.org to discuss specific requirements and the possibility of including this species.
