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
