This tutorial demonstrates the visibility controls on the Genome Browser, showing the affect on BED tracks, wiggle tracks and Conservation tracks. It also discusses supertracks and composite tracks.

Topics covered in this lesson
  • Set Browser to hg19 UCSC Genes track
  • BED track, pack to dense mode
  • BED track in full mode
  • Squish mode
  • SNPs are usually better in dense
  • OMIM Alleles in pack have useful mouseover
  • Super tracks and wiggle tracks
  • Wiggle tracks in dense and full
  • Conservation tracks
