Description
This hands-on workshop focuses on human genetic variation and cancer mutation resources. It covers the basic concepts behind different forms of variations, introduces variation databases (dbSNP, ClinVar, OMIM, DGV, PheGenI, HGMD, NextBio, COSMIC, Broad Tumor Portal, ExAc Browser, RegulomeDb), suggests database searching strategies, and the use of bioinformatics tools for predictive functional analysis of mutations (EBI Variant Effect Predictor).
