Description

This hands-on workshop features genetic variation resources and will focus on Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs) and Copy Number Variations (CNVs). It covers the basic concepts behind different forms of genetic variations, introduction to variation databases (dbSNP, OMIM, DGV, PheGenI, HGMD, GenomeTrax, NextBio), database searching strategies, and the use of bioinformatics tools for predictive functional analysis of mutations.
