How do I identify codon numbers with the UCSC Genome Browser?


This tutorial will demonstrate how to locate amino acid numbers for coding genes using the UCSC Genome Browser.

Topics covered in this lesson
  • Set up the Genome Browser display
  • Open genes tracks: UCSC Genes, RefSeq, GENCODE
  • Locate your gene and zoom to an exon
  • Turn on RefSeq track coloring-by-codons
  • Zoom to codon level
  • Use minibutton for track configuration: Show codon numbering
  • Configure composite track
  • Confirm codon numbers with OMIM AV SNPs and UniProt Variants
  • View UniProt Variants details page
