The Saved Sessions feature of the Browser has been around for quite some time, but many of our users have not made full use of it. This feature offers a great way to keep track of your thinking on a particular topic.
The Track Collection Builder is a new tool in the UCSC Genome Browser that provides a way to create grouped collections of sub-tracks with native tracks, custom tracks, or hub tracks of continuous value graphing data types.
This tutorial demonstrates the visibility controls on the Genome Browser, showing the effect on BED tracks, wiggle tracks, and Conservation tracks. It also discusses supertracks and composite tracks.
This tutorial describes the isPCR tool and demonstrates how to use it for predicting the size and location of PCR products and visualizing the genomic location on the genome. The tool operates on DNA templates for all organisms, and on human and mouse DNA/RNA. It also demonstrates how to use the Browser to obtain DNA sequences from the genome.
This tutorial describes the dbSNP resources in the UCSC Genome Browser, including display conventions and the subdivision of the data into several useful subset tracks, especially the Common SNPs. There is also a discussion about changes to the genome assemblies from one version to another, and of two ways to navigate between different assemblies of the human genome in the Browser.
This tutorial demonstrates the UCSC Genome Browser Data Integrator, a tool that allows combination and intersection of data from up to five primary tables. In the example, data are extracted showing SNPs, genes, and phenotypes from a genomic region.
This tutorial shows how to obtain coordinates of genes, then input those coordinates into the UCSC Genome Browser for display. The regions do not have to be continuous in the genome.
This tutorial demonstrates viewing alternate haplotypes with the UCSC Genome Browser.
The Genome Browser in the Cloud (GBiC) program is a convenient tool that automates the setup of a UCSC Genome Browser mirror on a cloud instance or a dedicated physical server.
This tutorial demonstrates how to get the coordinates and sequences of exons using the UCSC Genome Browser.
This tutorial will demonstrate how to find the tables in the UCSC database that are associated with the data tracks in the Genome Browser graphical viewer.
