Have anyone noticed the BioMart servers were down

I tried the UK, usesat, uswest and Asia. None of them gave response.

Sent a ticket to Helpdesk in Ensembl.

I've noticed the exact same thing. Was concerned it was an issue on my end. Hopefully it's fixed ASAP!

Hi,

I'm sorry that you've had a problem while using BioMart. BioMart experienced a heavy load yesterday's evening due to a number of large jobs monopolising our resources. I can confirm it's up and running now. Apologies for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience.

Best wishes, Michal Ensembl Helpdesk
