Description

This hands-on workshop provides an overview of resources and search strategies on transcriptional regulation. Special emphasis will be given on databases, including BioBase TRANSFAC, GenomeTrax, and RegulomeDB, and software such as Biobase Match, HaploReg, UCSC Genome browser to visualize the regulatory regions present in the human genome generated by the Encyclopedia of DNA Elements (ENCODE) project, and the recently licensed library tool - NextBio Enterprise to mine microarray data from the Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO) repository.
