Using your own data
Many genome browser views allow you to add your own custom data tracks. We support a range of data formats such as GFF, BED, WIG and BAM, see Supported file formats for a full list.
To attach or upload a custom track, click the Add your data button at the left of the view (which reads Manage your data if you already have added custom data) and upload or attach a file in the resulting window.
It is also possible to attach data by creating a specific URL for an Ensembl Genomes page that includes the location of your data file.
See the Adding Custom Tracks documentation in the genome browser for more details.
The Ensembl VEP tool allows you to upload your variants (SNPs, insertions, deletions, CNVs or structural variants) and see the predicted effect on genes, transcripts, and protein sequence, as well as regulatory regions.
Track Hubs are web-accessible directories of genomic data that can be visualised in genome browsers. Originally developed as part of the UCSC genome browser, they are now supported by Ensembl. Track Hubs allow data from multiple tracks to be linked together and included in the browser.
