Learn to use tools associated with the UCSC Genome Browser with this free tutorial, sponsored by UCSC Genome Bioinformatics Group. The UCSC Genome Browser provides other tools beyond genome browsing and querying that may be useful to your research. This third tutorial in the UCSC Genome Browser series explores additional interfaces, access points and visualizations for various data types, all within the framework of the official genome reference sequences from many species.

UCSC Genome Browser: An Introduction: The UCSC Genome Browser Introduction
Algorithms and Analysis : This category contains various tools that may help perform analysis of different genomics data types. This may include sequence alignment, large-scale or complex queries, motif finding, or comparative assessments.
Expression : This category may contain various expression data collections, annotation tools, or repositories of expression data.
Genome Databases (euk) : Genomic databases or repositories primarily aimed at eukaryotic organisms. Some may contain prokaryotic data as well.
Nucleotides : Tools that are primarily used in the storage, retrieval, or exploration of nucleotide-based data. Some tools may also involve protein sequence information.
Proteins : Tools that are primarily used in the storage, retrieval, or exploration of amino acid based data. Some tools may also involve nucleotide sequence information.
Video Tip of the Week: Introduction to the UCSC Genome Browser : This week's tip is quite multi-media. There's a video, as required. But there's a traditional published paper format, too. And there's also the free training slides and exercises from us, sponsored by ...
UCSC replaces UCSC Genes with GENCODE as default gene set: This is a big deal. And now I have to change my training materials. But I think it's worthwhile. The GENCODE set is very extensive and the range of annotated types captures important details. This emai...
Video Tip of the Week: ClinGen, The Clinical Genome Resource: The sequence data tsunami begins to crash into the shore, at the feet of clinicians and patients who want answers and treatment directions. But sometimes the tsunami is washing in debris. As the amount...
Video Tip of the Week: TargetMine, Data Warehouse for Drug Discovery: Browsing around genomic regions, layering on lots of associated data, and beginning to explore new data types I might come across are things that really fire up my brain. For me, visualization is key t...
Video Tip of the Week: Viewing Amino Acid info in the UCSC Genome Browser: We've been doing training on the UCSC Genome Browser for over 10 years now. We've seen it grow from just a few genomes and a few tracks to the enormous trove of information it is today. In fact, one of...
