Accessing Ensembl Pre Data

Ensembl pre data is available through a number of routes - which you choose depends on the amount and type of data you wish to fetch. Please note that Ensembl coordinates always have a one-based start.

Small quantities of data

Many of the pages displaying Ensembl genomic data offer an export option, suitable for small amounts of data, e.g. a single gene sequence.

Whole datasets

For a selection of species, whole datasets can be downloaded from our FTP site in a variety of formats. Please see individual species home pages for availability.

All data produced by the Ensembl project is freely available for your own use.
