UCSC Genome Browser Interactive Workshop

UCLA QCB Collaboratory presents a three-day workshop ideal for life science and biomedical researchers, bioinformaticians, and students.

The UCSC Genome Browser is a widely used visualization tool giving access to the genomes of human and more than one hundred other animals. Dr. Kuhn’s responsibilities include identifying important datasets for inclusion into the Browser, enabling researchers through teaching the Genome Browser in workshops and seminars and learning from them how to improve the Browser.

The workshop includes:

  • General overview of the Browser, and its history.
  • A guided tour of the basic parts of the UCSC Genome Browser.
  • Get DNA and use for PCR primers (in silico PCR)
  • Pathways, and Gene Interactions.
  • RNA-seq and Track Collections – co-configuration of data set.
  • and much more.
