Funding

Ensembl Metazoa receives funding from Infravec2, to serve as a data delivery mechanism for that project. Infravec2 is an international and interdisciplinary research project on insect vectors of human and animal disease, including mosquitoes, sandflies and other flies. This project has received funding from the European Unions Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 731060.

The biting midge genome resequencing and annotation is funding by a grant from the Bioinformatics and Biological Resources Fund of the United Kingdom Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (grant number BB/M028372/1) to The Pirbright Institute and the European Bioinformatics Institute.

The Branchiostoma lanceolatum (amphioxus) genome is provided by Corbel, an initiative of thirteen biological and medical research infrastructures creating a platform for harmonised access to biological and medical samples, technologies and data services. This project receives funding from the European Unions Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 654248.

Ensembl Genomes is developed by EMBL-EBI and is powered by the Ensembl software system for the analysis and visualisation of genomic data. For details of our funding please click here.
