Visualizing and Accessing Genomic Data Using Publically Available Genome Browsers and Databases
There are extensive genomic data available in public databases and these data are readily accessible using resources such as the UCSC Genome Bioinformatics tools, cBioPortal and the Broad Institute’s Integrative Genomics Viewer (IGV). This hands-on session will demonstrate some common workflows that are possible with these applications including bulk sequence extraction, powerful queries and the sharing and visualization of large datasets. This session will be taught by Charlie Whittaker and Duan Ma of the KI Bioinformatics and Computing Core Facility
Eligibility: MIT researchers affiliated with the Koch Institute, the Biology Department, the Center for Environmental Health Sciences or the Department of Biological Engineering. Registration required.
