The Ensembl genome Web browser (http://www.ensembl.org) provides a comprehensive source of automatic annotation of the human genome sequence (as well as other species of biomedical interest), with confirmed gene predictions that have been integrated with external data sources. This unit describes how to use the Ensembl browser, how to find your gene or protein of interest and get information and external links about them, and how to use the comparative genomic data.
