About this Class

As the scientific world has moved from the pre-genomic to the post-genomic era the need for tools that enable the visualization, integration and interrogation of genomic-scale data has never been greater. This talk will provide an overview of the world of Genome Browsers and demonstrate how you can use these powerful tools to visualize you own and other published data and to thus gain greater insight into the underlying biological processes. HIghlighted topics will include:

  • How to navigate the UCSC Genome Browser
  • How to integrate your own data into the Browser
  • How to get more detailed views of your data with tools like IGB and IGV
  • And more....
