Hands On Bioinformatics mini-courses

April 24, 2017, 10AM-12PM: Working with UCSC Genome Browser - Repeat mini-course!

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.

  • Instructor: Michael Chimenti, PhD, Bioinformatics Specialist, IIHG
  • Intended for individuals who would like basic information on the UCSC Genome Browser tool.

In conjunction with the Genetics Cluster Initiative, the Iowa Institute of Human Genetics (IIHG) hosts a monthly mini-course focusing on a bioinformatics tool or software.  Regularly scheduled for the fourth Monday of each month from 10:00 AM to Noon, the Hands-on Bioinformatics mini-course covered topics such as UCSC Genome Browser, Kallisto/Sleuth, R programming language and Galaxy. Each mini-course has limited registration due to the interactive nature of the content.  Since the registration is limited to 12 participants per mini-course, the IIHG and GCI will repeat topics more than once per year depending on the demand.  Mini-courses are free to attend, and lunch is provided.
