ENCODE data in the UCSC Genome Browser webinar Tuesday
We’ve got a webinar coming up Tuesday July 24 exploring our brand-new “ENCODE in the UCSC Genome Browser” materials. We are preparing the accompanying movie, but it’s still in our studio right now. So this is your first chance to see the new materials.

This webinar explores how to identify and explore many of the human data types in the UCSC Genome Browser that have come through the ENCODE project. If you aren’t familiar with the ENCODE project–or need a refresher–you can see our ENCODE Foundations tutorial suite. That’s freely available because it was sponsored by the UCSC ENCODE team. It’s not required for the new tutorial, but it would give you some background on the project.
You can access our webinar slides here (zipped): http://www.openhelix.com/downloads/jing/encode2_slides_v1.zip
We’ll announce when the full suite of materials is available (very soon we hope!).
After the webinar, we’ll also field questions here on the blog in a follow-up post if we didn’t have time or the answers need links and further detail, or if you go away and try out some things and have other issues that arise you can ask us later.
