I am using the following script to connect to the Ensembl core. I keep
getting the message "unknown database homo_sapiens_core". Anyone knows
a solution to this?
I would really appreciate any help!

#!/bin/perl -w

use lib 'C:/perl/lib/ensembl/modules';
use Bio::EnsEMBL::DBSQL::DBAdaptor;
use Bio::EnsEMBL::DBSQL::SliceAdaptor;

my $host   = 'ensembldb.ensembl.org';
my $user   = 'anonymous';
my $dbname = 'homo_sapiens_core';
my $db = new Bio::EnsEMBL::DBSQL::DBAdaptor(
    -host   => $host,
    -user   => $user,
    -dbname => $dbname);

my $slice_adaptor = $db->get_SliceAdaptor();
my $slice = $slice_adaptor->fetch_by_region('chromosome',
