People are using the UCSC Genome Browser to visualize and analyze many important genomic features. During our training sessions we have found that people sometimes don’t realize how they can see the amino acid sequences in the browser. When you have zoomed into a region enough you can actually see a three-frame translation of the genomic sequence in the viewer.
Ah-ha, you say! But there should be six frames, right?
Watch this “tip of the week” to see how to display the other 3-frames.
