Tools for Comparative Genomics

Tutorial and training materials by OpenHelix

Learn to use VISTA from the Genomics Division of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. VISTA provides a way to examine the data from many genomes, with extensive annotation for various data types including known genes, predicted genes, SNPs, comparative multi-species analysis and much more. VISTA also contains excellent sequence alignment and visualization tools with capacity for long sequences. Use VISTA as a primary resource for your comparative genomics research needs.

You'll learn:

  • how to examine pre-computed relationships among a variety of species
  • ways of submitting and analyzing sequences of your own in VISTA
  • how to discover possible regulatory transcription factor binding sites in your favorite genes
  • to compare genomic sequences with customizable graphical representations and many other output options
