How do I connect with the Ensembl Perl API?

Answer: 

VectorBase gene builds are constructed by VectorBase staff at Ensembl Genomes, and for convenience we also use their public MySQL server to store a recent release of our data (see data access to access to the MySQL server):

mysql -hmysql.ebi.ac.uk -P4157 -uanonymous

Owing to production cycle constraints, the data hosted by Ensembl Genomes correspond 100% with the previous release of VectoBase gene builds but the database is refreshed every two months.

Please see the Ensembl Core API Tutorial for more information.
