The Ensembl project, a joint project between the EBI and the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, provides a comprehensive and integrated source of annotation of mainly vertebrate genome sequences. This 1-day workshop offers participants the possibility of gaining hands-on experience in the use of the Ensembl genome browser at www.ensembl.org and provides the necessary background information. The workshop is primarily targeted at wet-lab scientists. New users and those who wish to deepen their understanding of the data and navigation behind the Ensembl Browser are welcome. Note: This is not an API course, and will focus on the browser and BioMart.
Most modules consist of a presentation followed by the opportunity to do exercises. Participants are encouraged to bring problems/questions about their research to try to tackle these during the workshop using Ensembl. The workshop will consist of the following modules, with a focus on livestock genomes.
- Guided Tour of www.ensembl.org
- Comparative Genomics
