Tip of the Week: Genome Variation Tour III

submitted by: OpenHelix

For more information, few the blog post at: http://blog.openhelix.eu/?p=4763 . This tip is the continuation of a genome variation tour. We will look at finding SNPs in LD with our SNP of interest using GVS

Tip of the Week: Genome Variation Tour II

submitted by: OpenHelix

More information can be found here: http://blog.openhelix.eu/?p=4602 . This week's tip in 2nd part in a 5 part series of tips following one variation in an individual's genome across several databases and resources to find out what information we gather about the clinical association of that variation. This wee we look at dbSNP, VarView and OMIM.

Tip of the Week: The Cancer Genome Workbench

submitted by: OpenHelix

For more information about this resource, see our blog post at http://blog.openhelix.eu/?p=4520. The Cancer Genome Workbench gathers cancer information from a wide variety of projects and presents the cumulative data as high-level summary visualizations. With just a bit of acclimation, researchers can utilize this resource to further their understanding of cancer genomics.

Tip of the Week: Genome Variation Tour I

submitted by: OpenHelix

You can read more at http://blog.openhelix.eu/?p=4455 . The first in a multi-part tour of the many resources available to the researcher or clinician looking into the data on genomic variation. Today's tip looks at UCSC Genome Browser and dbSNP.

Tip of the Week: WAVe

submitted by: OpenHelix

A quick introduction to WAVe (Web Analysis of the Variome), a great tool that pulls in a wealth of information about human gene variation. For a more high-resolution version of this tip and more information about the resource, visit the OpenHelix blog.
