Description

This hands-on workshop will focus on a variety of genome biology resources. Participants will learn to (1) identify and retrieve 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), (3) construct complex queries and retrieve large-scale genome data (Table Browser), and (4) create custom genome browser tracks from users’ own uploaded data (UCSC Custom Track tool).
