Slice

The term "slice" in Ensembl refers to a length of DNA sequence. A slice can be any length, from one base long to the entire length of a chromosome. A slice is defined as follows:

'coord_system_name:coord_system_version:seq_region_name:start:end:strand'

eg. 'chromosome:GRCm38:X:1000:2000:1'
