Lecture title:

What is the difference between attention and consciousness? This lecture describes the scientific meaning of consciousness, journeys on the search for neural correlates of visual consciousness, and explores the possibility of consciousness in other beings and even non-biological structures.

Speaker: : Clay Reid
Lecture title:

This lecture focuses on how the immune system can target and attack the nervous system to produce autoimmune responses that may result in diseases such as multiple sclerosis, neuromyelitis and lupus cerebritis manifested by motor, sensory, and cognitive impairments. Despite the fact that the brain is an immune-privileged site, autoreactive lymphocytes producing proinflammatory cytokines can cause active brain inflammation, leading to myelin and axonal loss.

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.

Difficulty level: Beginner
Duration: 14:30
Lecture title:

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 DNA or RNA on human and mouse. It also demonstrates how to use the Browser to obtain DNA sequences from the genome.

Difficulty level: Beginner
Duration: 8:01
Lecture title:

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
Duration: 17:41
Lecture title:

This tutorial demonstrates the 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.
