The UCSC Genome Browser Beyond the Basics
February 11, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 2:30 pm PSTFree
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.
