Ensembl is a data warehousing and data sets project which helps to analyse advanced biological data. Simple this application displays a 1 dimensional map of a chromosomal region and then the stacks annotations on top of it. So scientists can configure these images and add/remove tracks at will to highlight biological features of interest.

This is a brief introduction on the project which is currently in use in Ensembl project. The main goal of this project is to develop a database to store above mentioned tracks and also implement a REST API to search the tracks. And also an administration panel to manage(search) all the tracks and all other inside scripting and all. So I would like to divide this project into 3 main stages.

Implementation of the database Implementation of the REST API Design and develop front end.
