Housed in the new IIHG Computer Lab complete with high-capacity computing stations, the Hands-On Bioinformatics series is an exciting, new way to learn bioinformatics tools.  Space is limited to 8 participants, so sign up today!

This mini-course is for anyone in the University research community looking to leverage the powerful research tool known as the UCSC Genome Browser in their work.  We will cover an overview of the browser, navigating genes, viewing annotations, and linking out to other databases and literature.  As time permits, additional advanced topics such as creating custom tables and custom tracks will be discussed.  The format of the course will be a series of screencasts narrated by the instructor so that each student can work at their own pace.  Brief follow-up exercises and group discussion will help apply what has been learned. The course is designed to introduce new users, but can also serve as a valuable refresher for experienced users.

The event is on Monday January 25, 2016 in 2312 PBDB (IIHG Computer Lab). Please register for the event following this link.
