10mar1:00 pm3:30 pmNIH Library: Genome Browsers


Event Details

This course walks through using and applying two popular, freely available genome browsers and how they can help bioinformatics analysis: the University of California Santa Cruz (UCSC) Genome Browser and the Integrative Genomics Viewer (IGV). Used to view the assembly of the complete genome in human or other species, these browsers are valuable tools for identifying and localizing genes/mutations. This course will demonstrate how to view different genome maps/tracks and make best use of them.

This is a hands-on course with 24 laptops available in the library’s classroom. If you prefer to work from your own laptop, feel free to install the IGV browser in advance from here – UCSV browser is web browser based).
