Description

This hands-on workshop focuses on human genetic variations and cancer mutations. It covers identification of variants using CLC Genomics Workbench software and introduces variation databases (dbSNP, ClinVar, OMIM, DGV, PheGenI, HGMD, NextBio, COSMIC, Broad Tumor Portal, ExAc Browser, RegulomeDb). The workshop will also teach how to use bioinformatics tools for functional analysis of mutations (EBI Variant Effect Predictor).
