UCSC Intro

Free Webinars: World Tour of Resources and UCSC Genome Browser

OpenHelix will be presenting two webinars: World Tour of Genomics Resources, May 21st at 1:00 EDT, and Introduction to the UCSC Genome Browser, June 17th at 1:00 EDT.

World Tour of Genomics Resources Webinar World Tour of Genomics Resources

This world tour of genomic resources will discuss the number and breadth of publicly available bioscience resources available to researchers. It will include a tour of example resources, organized by categories such as algorithms and analysis tools, expression resources, genome browsers (both eukaryotic and prokaryotic/microbial), literature and text mining resources, and resources focused on nucleotides, proteins, pathways, disease and variation.

Introduction to the UCSC Genome Browser

We will cover the topics needed to effectively use this powerful, free, publicly-accessible tool, including basic functionality of the Genome Browser searching and BLAT use. Only basic knowledge of genomics and biology concepts are required. This will be an introduction on how to use the Browser so no programming skills are required.
