Access to Genes and Genomes with the UCSC Genome Browser 2012

Osvaldo Graña, CNIO Bioinformatics Unit
Wednesday, December 5th 2012 
Course Poster The UCSC Genome Browser resource contains the reference public DNA sequences and working draft assemblies for human and a large collection of other genomes.

Learn about the ENCODE Project, ENCyclopedia of DNA Elements, an international consortium of researchers who are moving beyond the basic information of the reference genome sequence. Researchers are using many cutting-edge technologies to learn as much as possible about variations, genes, non-coding transcripts, regulatory elements, and genome structure and more, in extensive detail across the entire genome.

The ENCODE project is coordinated by the NHGRI. The UCSC Genome Browser is the designated Data Coordination Center (DCC), for the ENCODE project, and the official ENCODE data repository.
