We are excited to announce that Ensembl has joined the international scientific effort to tackle the #COVID19 pandemic.

Today, we have launched our #SARSCoV2 browser and related resources at:

Highlights of this initial release include: - Gene annotation of the reference genome ‘Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 isolate Wuhan-Hu-1’ (MN908947.3) using a modified Ensembl genebuild supported by protein evidence - Gene annotation from the Shanghai Public Health Clinical Center & School of Public Health, Fudan University, Shanghai, China, via ENA - Information on gene functions from Gene Ontology - Variation data from Nextstrain with consequence predictions and nucleotide frequencies for individual isolates, as well as grouped by clades and countries - Problematic variant sites as defined by De Maio et al - Protein and genomic features from InterProScan

The release blog post with all details can be viewed here:

We will continue to add new data and expand this resource in future releases. Like for all Ensembl data, we place no restrictions on the use of our COVID-19 resources. Whole genome databases can be downloaded from our FTP server:

SARS-CoV-2 is the first virus we have added to our growing resource of more than 45,000 genomes. We hope this will be useful and we welcome your thoughts on it. Please contact us via the email address in the blog post to give feedback.
