Online Resources for Genetic Variation Study - Part One

General Information

This workshop is offered twice during each academic semester. Unless otherwise noted, it is held in the 20-seat computer classroom at the 2nd floor in NML.

Workshop Scope

This workshop provides an overview on human genetic variations with emphasis on single nucleotide polymorphisms, as well as a survey on the main online databases in this field. The hands-on search examples are designed to help users to search genetic variation data from those public databases.

Major Topics Covered

  • Human genetic variation and single nucleotide polymorphisms overview
  • NCBI genetic variation resources: dbSNP and OMIM.
  • The HapMap Project overview and search examples
  • The Perlegen genetic variation database overview
  • The SeattleSNPs Genome Variation Server overview and search example
  • Ensembl SNPs overview

Prerequisite
None.

Workshop Registration

Though not required, workshop registration will secure your seat when the number of attendees exceeds the computer room seating capacity.
