Description

This workshop will focus on a variety of genome biology resources. Participants will learn to (1) identify and retrieve organism’s whole genome sequence information by searching databases (NCBI Genome, Integrated Microbial Genome), (2) navigate genome sequences and extract information from annotated genome data (UCSC Genome Browser, NCBI MapViewer), (3) construct complex queries and retrieve large-scale genome data (Table Browser), and (4) create custom genome browser track from users’ own uploaded data (UCSC Custom Track tool).
