Variant Visualizer Tutorial

submitted by: RGD.Videos

The examination of SNPs has undergone a recent change, and in response to this change, RGD has released the new Variant Visualizer tool (VarVis), taking the place of the old SNPlotyper tool. VarVis is a visualization and analysis tool for sequence variation. The data currently contains 22 rat strains sequenced by 4 independent labs.

Viewing Ensembl Regulation & ENCODE Using the Matrix

submitted by: gspudich
This tutorial demonstrates how to view sequences potentially involved in gene regulation. These sequences are analysed by Ensembl Regulation based mostly on ENCODE data, along with Roadmap Epigenomics data for human. The end of this tutorial shows how to add the full ENCODE data set to a genome display in Ensembl. The Region in Detail in the Ensembl browser will be explored.

Gene Annotator Tutorial

submitted by: RGD.Videos

The Gene Annotator takes a list of gene symbols, RGD IDs, GenBank accession numbers, Ensembl identifiers, and/or a chromosomal region, and retrieves annotation data from RGD. This tool will retrieve annotations from any or all ontologies used at RGD for genes and their orthologs, as well as links to additional information at other databases.
