BioMart community portal temporarily unavailable

We are in the process of migrating hosting, during which time the BioMart community portal will be temporarily unavailable.

However, you can still access BioMart services at any of the BioMart community servers. The list of those servers is listed in the table below. The link to the server can be found under 'Database' heading. For example, if you are interested in using the latest Ensembl release through BioMart web interface simply click on 'Ensembl' and the link will take you to If you are a user of biomaRt (a part of the Bioconductor library) change the host from '' to ''. Similar procedure can be used for all the other community servers.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
