Video Tip of the Week: The New Database of Genomic Variants – DGV2

submitted by: OpenHelix

For more information about this resource, please see our blog post at URL http://blog.openhelix.eu/?p=10185. In today’s tip I will briefly introduce you to the beta version of the updated Database of Genomic Variants, or DGV.

Demo: Using BLAST/BLAT in Ensembl

submitted by: gspudich

We demonstrate the BLAST/BLAT tool in Ensembl. Search for a sequence in www.ensembl.org, and identify hits to the genome, or to genes, with this tool.

Demo: Structural variation for a region

submitted by: gspudich

Large structural variations like CNVs (copy number variation) are explored for a region of the human genome. We use the Ensembl genome browser at www.ensembl.org

Demo: Variation for the ZAP70 gene with Ensembl

submitted by: gspudich

We use the Ensembl genome browser at www.ensembl.org to view small scale sequence variants such as SNPs (single nucleotide polymorphims) along with larger structural variations like CNVs (copy number variation) for the human ZAP70 gene.

Ensembl Overview (given at ErasmusMC, Sept 2011)

submitted by: gspudich

This is an overview of the data available in the Ensembl Genome Browser with a focus on the gene set and sequence variation. Four demos follow this presentation, using www.ensembl.org.
