Course Poster The Ensembl project provides a comprehensive and integrated source of annotation of mainly vertebrate sequences, with other species available in This workshop offers  participants the possibility of gaining hands-on experience in the use  of the Ensembl Genome Browser and provides them with the necessary  background information. Primarily targeted at wetlab researchers, a  combination of hands-on exercises along with presentations will lead the  scientist through tools and annotation he/she may be able to use in the  course of biological research.
