We are pleased to announce the public availability of an Ensembl
mirror in Asia. It can be found at http://asia.ensembl.org/ .
This provides a fully functional Ensembl website, but there are some
things to note which I've listed below.


We don't automatically redirect users to the new mirror, although we
have plans for this in future. So for now you'll need to explicitly
visit http://asia.ensembl.org/ to access it.


If you use the login functionality, your existing login will work on
http://asia.ensembl.org/ , and configuration changes will
be shared between sites.


We don't yet offer the Biomart or BLAST/BLAT services on the new
mirror; these will come in the near future. We currently have no plans
to offer an Aisa-based MySQL mirror, so you should continue use
ensembldb.ensembl.org for MySQL queries.

We're very keen to hear your experiences with this new mirror; please
use the Helpdesk
(http://www.ensembl.org/Help/Contact) in the first instance, or
contact me directly.
