Tip of the Week: Getting flanking sequence of genomic locations

I did this tip about two years ago. That was in our old system and I wanted to update it to our Scivee system. In addition, we did this tip using Galaxy and Galaxy has had a lot of changes since then. In this weeks tip I am going to walk you through a quick task of getting the flanking sequence of a list of chromosomal locations. In Galaxy, this is relatively simple, as you will see from the tip. There is a lot more you can do with this once you’ve obtained the sequence, manipulating the text to obtain columns of data necessary, etc. You might want to check out our tutorial on Galaxy or the Galaxy screencasts to learn more.
