Biotechnology Annual Review - UCSC Genome Browser: Deep support for molecular biomedical research. Abstract The volume and complexity of genomic sequence data, and the additional experimental data required for annotation of the genomic context, pose a major challenge for display and access for biomedical researchers.
Genome browsers organize this data and make it available in various ways to extract useful information to advance research projects. The UCSC Genome Browser is one of these resources. The official sequence data for a given species forms the framework to display many other types of data such as expression, variation, cross-species comparisons, and more. Molecular Biotechnology, Volume 38, Number 3. For beginners in the field, this review highlights the key features of the genome browser at UCSC for data display, and provides nearly step-by-step procedures for creating publication quality maps.
The browser offers an engine (Blat) for searching a known genomic DNA for correspondence with protein and DNA sequences specified by the user. The results provide links to graphical displays, known as maps. Users can create “designer maps” by adding Tracks to view various types of data and specific landmarks. The browser offers an extensive list of options. They include the position of annotated genes, the position of reference cDNA sequences (RefSeq from GenBank), the position of alternatively spliced mRNA species, and predictions derived from computational models to identify potential transcription start sites and potential protein binding elements in genomic DNA.

Filter your results @ GenoScapeGC GenoScapeGC GenoScapeGC Excellent piece by @ Erika_Check DNA has limits, but so does study questioning its value, geneticists say DNA has limits, but so does study questioning its value, geneticists say : Nature News Blog Scientists are irked over a paper claiming, as The New York Times reported on Monday, that " DNA's power to predict illness is limited. " What the ‘limits of DNA’ story reveals about the challenges of science journalism in the ‘big data’ age. As a science journalist, I sympathize with book reviewers who wrestle with the question of whether to write negative reviews.
It seems a waste of time to write about a dog of a book when there are so many other worthy ones; but readers deserve to know if Oprah is touting a real stinker. On 2 April, Science Translational Medicine published a study on DNA’s shortcomings in predicting disease. My editors and I had decided not to cover the study last week after we saw it in the journal’s embargoed press packet, because my sources offered heavy critiques of its methods. But it was a tough choice: we knew the paper was bound to get a lot of other coverage, as it conveyed a provocative message, would be published in a prominent journal, and would be highlighted at a press conference at the well-attended annual meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research. I ended up writing about the paper anyway after it made a huge media splash that prompted fury among geneticists. 1.
All genomes are dysfunctional: broken genes in healthy individuals. Breakdown of the number of loss-of-function variants in a "typical" genome I don’t normally blog here about my own research, but I’m making an exception for this paper. There are a few reasons to single this paper out: firstly, it’s in Science (!) ; and secondly, no fewer than five Genomes Unzipped members (me, Luke, Joe, Don and Jeff) are co-authors. Cryptic genetic variation promotes rapid evolutionary adaptation in an RNA enzyme (Hayden et al, Nature, 2011) Background Cryptic genetic variation (CGV) is defined as “standing genetic variation that does not contribute to the normal range of phenotypes observed in a population, but that is available to modify a phenotype that arises after environmental change or the introduction of novel alleles” [Gibson & Dworkin, 2004].
As such, CGV fills the gap between : 1. expressed genetic variation, defined as genetic variation that contributes to the normal range of phenotypes actually present in a population ; 2. neutral genetic variation, that does not contribute to phenotypes under any likely genetic or environmental conditions ; a typical example of neutral genetic variation would be synonymous substitutions in protein coding sequences.
The necessity of the concept of CGV stems from the observation that environmental or genetic perturbations can reveal standing genetic variation that was silent or “cryptic” under standard conditions. An account of the discussion 1. NIH VideoCasting and Podcasting. VideoCasting - Cancer Genomes Analysis: Computational Challenges and Approaches. Dr. Getz will discuss how the recent revolution in sequencing technologies has enabled comprehensive characterization of many thousands of cancer genomes, for example from The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) and the International Cancer Genome Consortium (ICGC).
These resulting data pose new computational challenges in detecting the various genomic alterations in the cancer genomes from sequencing data, understanding the mechanisms that create them, and dealing with heterogeneous samples. In addition, he will discuss the greatest challenge is how to introduce these findings to clinical trials and standard practice.

One of the new things coming in Biopython 1.59 is improved chromosome diagrams, something you may have seen via Twitter. I’ve just been updating the Biopython Tutorial (current version here, PDF) to include an example drawing this: Here’s a PDF version too.
Online lecture series on genomics and bioinformatics. A current lecture course surveying genomics and bioinformatics is available online, hosted on YouTube by GenomeTV. Handouts for the thirteen week course are hosted on the course website. We’re told that the course includes an update on technologies that have changed over the past two years. These lectures are introductory. They are aimed at biologists who wish to learn more about genomics or bioinformatics, perhaps because their upcoming work intersects with it, rather those who already have some detailed knowledge or experience of the field.
I would add that, being lectures, they are high-flying in the sense that they do not deal with the actual hands-on work involved, which introduces finer detail and further issues not covered in these lectures. Richard Resnick: Welcome to the genomic revolution. Juan Enriquez on genomics and our future. Introduction to The 'Omics Age. The sequencing of the human genome has changed how we do genetics. Instead of examining one gene at a time, we now look at the genetic variation across the entire genome.
We can examine how transcription changes at a global level in different cell types, or under different conditions. Podcast : Frontiers in genetics and genomics. Guide to the UCSC Genome Browser. Genomes can be aligned to each other in order to study their evolution, to find homologs, and to determine the location of potentially functional genomic regions. In this section, you will learn about functional elements predicted from conservation data as well as experimentally-defined regulatory elements.
