Retrieve sequences for a given organism in Ensembl


Retrieves genomes, transcriptomes, proteomes or GTF files from Ensembl and Ensembl genomes databases.


  • Species name This parameter defines the species name or taxonomy code. In species names, spaces should be replaced with underscore character. For example: homo_sapiens or mus_musculus)
  • Sequence data type This parameter defines what sequences are retrieved for the given species: Full genome, transcripts, the protein sequences or genome annotation in GTF format.
  • List the available species names When this selection is used, Ensemblfetch will retrieve list of species names, available in Ensembl and Ensembl genomes database.
  • Output

    Output is a GTF file or a FASTA formatted sequence file containing the genome, transcriptome or the proteome of the species defined.
