The UCSC Genome Browser Beyond the Basics

February 11, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 2:30 pm PST


How to use the UCSC Genome Browser to access genomic data for a variety of vertebrate, invertebrate species & model organisms

Presented by Robert Kuhn, PhD, Associate Director, UCSC Genome Browser

  • Learn how to load your own data into the Genome Browser.
  • Learn to export gene coordinates with the Table Browser, then use those coordinates to display those regions together.
  • Work with the new Track Collections tool to co-configure multiple RNA-seq tracks together.
  • See where to find tutorials, exercises, and other information about using the UCSC Genome Browser and its tools.

The UCSC Genome Browser

  • Provides visualization tools for a large genomic database spanning more than 100 animal species
  • Presents a large number of annotation datasets, including mRNA alignments, gene predictions, epigenetic marker mapping, and expression data
  • Features a new tool to analyze sequence variant data
  • Allows users to host a fully functional browser for organisms not in the UCSC database
  • Facilitates saving views of user data to share with colleagues, process with the UCSC Table Browser, and intersect with UCSC-hosted data
  • A new feature allows the user to display exons only, essentially removing non-coding regions from the Browser view.
