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.

Difficulty level: Beginner

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.

Difficulty level: Beginner

Fibr is an app for quality control of diffusion MRI images from the Healthy Brain Network, a landmark mental health study that is collecting MRI images and other assessment data from 10,000 New York City area children. The purpose of the app is to train a computer algorithm to analyze the Healthy Brain Network dataset. By playing fibr, you are helping to teach the computer which images have sufficiently good quality and which images do not.

In this lesson, you will learn about the GeNN (GPU-enhanced Neuronal Networks) framework, which aims to facilitate the use of graphics accelerators for computational models of large-scale neuronal networks. GeNN is an open-source library that generates code to accelerate the execution of network simulations on NVIDIA GPUs, through a flexible and extensible interface, which does not require in-depth technical knowledge from the users.
