Darwin Tree of Life
The Darwin Tree of Life project (DToL) aims to exploit long read technologies to sequence the genomes of all 60,000 species of eukaryotic organisms in Britain and Ireland. It is a collaboration between biodiversity, genomics and analysis partners that hopes to transform the way we do biology, conservation and biotechnology.
Darwin Tree of Life is a consortium of partners who will build and prove an end-to-end pipeline of sample collection, sequencing, genome assembly, annotation and data dissemination that can deliver this visionary project.
Ensembl is a partner in the Darwin Tree of Life project, and we annotate the protein-coding and non-coding RNA gene structures using a re-engineered version of our Gene Annotation System (Aken et al, 2017). After QC, genomes and annotations are made available via our FTP site (see table below) before subsequently being made available in the Ensembl Genome Browser.
