			The Ensembl project has been aggregating,
			processing, integrating and redistributing
			genomic datasets since the initial releases
			of the draft human genome, with the aim
			of accelerating genomics research through
			rapid open distribution of public data.
			Large amounts of raw data are thus transformed
			into knowledge, which is made available
			via a multitude of channels, in particular
			our browser (http://www.ensembl.org). Over
			time, we have expanded in multiple directions.
			First, our resources describe multiple fields
			of genomics, in particular gene annotation,
			comparative genomics, genetics and epigenomics.
			Second, we cover a growing number of genome
			assemblies; Ensembl Release 90 contains
			exactly 100. Third, our databases feed
			simultaneously into an array of services
			designed around different use cases, ranging
			from quick browsing to genome-wide bioinformatic
			analysis. We present here the latest developments
			of the Ensembl project, with a focus on
			managing an increasing number of assemblies,
			supporting efforts in genome interpretation
			and improving our browser.
