Ensembl: Text search

Added by Richard Challis on July 28th 2016

Text search 

Enter any search term in the box in the top-left corner.  On general pages, the search defaults to across all species.  On assembly-specific pages the search will be within that assembly and broadened to all species if no match is found.


Search terms available in the index will automatically be offered as autocomplete options. Simple matches are considered first so it may be necessary to add a space before more complex terms are offered for autocomplete.

Results page

The results page is presented with the entered term in the search term box.


Each result provides direct links to the matching gene, transcripts(s), translation(s) and the genomic location.

Filter by assembly

To restrict the search to a specific assembly (or expand the search to all species) select the appropriate entry from the Filter by dropdown.
