RSAT - retrieve EnsEMBL sequence

Returns upstream, downstream, intronic, exonic, UTR, transcript, mRNA, CDS or gene sequences for a list of genes from the EnsEMBL database.
Multi-genome queries are supported: automatic retrieval of sequences for all the orthologs of the query genes, at a given taxonomical level.

Program developed by with the help of

Remark: If you want to retrieve sequences from an organism that is not in the EnsEMBL database, you can use the retrieve-seq program instead
