Genome Browsers & Hubs

Genome browsers and bioinformatics hubs provide interactive user interfaces with links to multiple sites and data sources. These classes provide hands-on introductions to these useful sites.

Available Classes

You have probably heard of or used the UCSC Genome Browser, but the Ensembl Genome Browser is a platform that also contains a wealth of information on dozens of species’ genomic data. This hands-on demonstration will show users how to navigate the basic Ensembl interface and find resources and supporting data from the Ensembl web site.


This class introduces users to the UCSC Genome Browser: how to search for genomic features, select tracks to view, and access specific genomic coordinates for features of interest.
