First Advanced Course on UCSC Genome Browser



The CNIO Bioinformatics Unit is organising a First Advanced Course on UCSC Genome Browser, to be held on Wednesday, February 9th 2011.

The course is limited to 15 persons and restricted to experimental biologists that already participated in the introductory UCSC Genome Browsing Course organised by the Bionformatics Unit, and for bioinformaticians that usually work with the UCSC Genome Browser. Please contact us (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ) in advance if you wish to attend the course.

Course Poster

The UCSC Genome Browser resource contains the reference (or official) public DNA sequences and working draft assemblies for human and a large collection of other genomes. There are a number of tools within it that provide access to the sequences themselves, and many other useful genome features to add context to the genomic information.  Researchers can use this site to find genes and gene predictions, expression information, SNPs and variations, cross-species comparative data, and more.
