Description

This hands-on workshop provides an overview of resources and search strategies on transcriptional regulation. Emphasis will be given to databases, including TRANSFAC (transcription factors), Proteome (promoter sequences) and RegulomeDB (SNPs with known and predicted regulatory elements). Software that will be covered: BIOBASE Match to locate transcription factor binding sites present in a query sequence, UCSC Genome Browser to visualize the regulatory regions present in the human genome generated by the Encyclopedia of DNA Elements (ENCODE) project, and the HSLS licensed tool – NextBio Enterprise to mine microarray/RNA Seq data from the Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO) repository.
