In order to import a new genome assembly and annotations using EasyImport, you will need to have a local database server set up with at least one mirrored Ensembl/EnsemblGenomes database to use as a template. The simplest way to do this is to use [GenomeHubs](http://genomehubs.org) containers by following the instructions in the [Quick start guide](doc:quick-start-guide). The only requirements in terms of data are a ``fasta`` format sequence file for the genome assembly you wish to import and a ``.gff3`` annotation file containing gene models (strictly speaking, it is possible to import only sequence data so the ``.gff3`` may be considered optional, though the resulting Ensembl database would have limited utility).
