The UCSC Genome Browser (http://genome.ucsc.edu/) is a powerful tool for interacting with genome assemblies of many organisms. This workshop will introduce you to the wealth of data contained in the browser and related databases, and will allow you to integrate and compare results of your genomic and transcriptomic experiments.

This workshop will feature topics including:

  • Loading your own data and integrating them with Browser-resident data
  • Prediction of the biochemical results of variants
  • Viewing the genome in exon-only mode
  • Pathways
  • Precomputed CRISPR probes
  • Using a large database of known variants
  • Saving and sharing Browser sessions
  • Exporting high-resolution images

Who should attend? … Prior workshop participants have included faculty, post docs, grad students, staff, and industry researchers. There are no prerequisites.

What do I need to bring? … A laptop!  The UCSC Browser works best on recent versions of Firefox, Chrome, Safari and Internet Explorer (in that order).

How  much does it cost? … The registration fee is $75 for current students, postdocs, staff and faculty at UC campus’ or UC National Labs (LBNL, LANL, LLNL), $100 for other academic or non-profit participants and $150 for other participants.
