The UCSC Genome Browser (http://genome.ucsc.edu/) is a powerful tool for interacting with genome assemblies of many organisms. This workshop will introduce you to the wealth of data contained in the browser and related databases, and will allow you to integrate and compare results of your genomic and transcriptomic experiments.
This workshop will feature topics including:
- Loading your own data and integrating them with Browser-resident data
- Prediction of the biochemical results of variants
- Viewing the genome in exon-only mode
- Precomputed CRISPR probes
- Using a large database of known variants
- Saving and sharing Browser sessions
- Exporting high-resolution images
