We will have had our first webinar on the UCSC Genome Browser on May 24th. It is an introduction to many of the basic features and display aspects of the browser. It corresponds to the material that you can find on our UCSC-sponsored tutorial materials that are freely available here: http://www.openhelix.com/ucsc
We will have had some time for some questions at the webinar. But there may be things we didn’t have time to discuss, or cover in enough detail. Or people may go away and try some things and then come back with further questions. This thread will serve as a place to discuss issues around the Introductory materials, the webinar, browser basics, etc. We’d also love to hear any feedback on other things you’d like to see covered in the future as well.
