Dear all,

Hinxton based Ensembl websites and the public MySQL server 
(ensembldb.ensembl.org) will be unavailable from 1500h GMT on Friday the 
4th July for essential maintenance within the Sanger Data centre. We aim 
to be able to restore the services by 1300h GMT on Sunday the 6th July. 
Other resources such as the FTP site and the REST server 
(rest.ensembl.org) will be unaffected. Our mirror sites - the public 
MySQL server (useastdb.ensembl.org) and websites(useast.ensembl.org, 
uswest.ensembl.org and asia.ensembl.org) - will be available as usual, 
although BLAST/BLAT searches, VEP queries and user logins from the 
mirror websites will be unavailable during this period. We expect a 
similar shut down to be necessary on the weekend of the 18th - 20th July 
but will post more details later. Apologies for any inconvenience that 
this causes.
