Ensembl Genome Browser Workshop, 24 January 24

The Bioinformatics Core and the Shields Library are hosting an Ensembl Genome Browser Workshop on January 24, 2019!

For more information and to register, go to https://registration.genomecenter.ucdavis.edu/.

The Ensembl and Ensembl Genomes projects (www.ensembl.org) provide a comprehensive and integrated source of annotation of vertebrate and non-vertebrate genome sequences, respectively. The browser workshop will include presentation and demonstration, and provide participants an opportunity to gain hands-on experience in the use of Ensembl genome browsers. Depending on the preferences of the participants, more or less emphasis can be allocated to the Ensembl browser (vertebrates) and to the Ensembl Genomes browser (non-vertebrates). Preferences will be determined through a pre-course survey of registrants. The Ensembl browser workshops typically consist of the first four core modules below, plus one other module (Comparative Genomics or Regulation).

Topics will include:

  • Introduction to Ensembl: origin, goals and organisation of the Ensembl project

  • Genebuild: how are Ensembl gene and transcripts predictions made?

  • Data mining with BioMart: retrieving genomic information using a web interface (no programming required).

  • Variation: SNPs and other polymorphisms, haplotypes, structural variants like CNVs and the Ensembl VEP (variant effect predictor)

This workshop will be held in a computer classroom at Shields Library and will run from 9:30am to 5pm on Thursday, January 24, 2019. You may either use one of the MS Windows desktops in the room or you may bring your own laptop to use.

There is a registration fee of $40, which covers the cost of hosting the workshop. Coffee and snacks will be provided.
