ENCODE Data at UCSC
Tutorial and training materials by OpenHelix
|ENCODE (Encyclopedia Of DNA Elements) is a “big data” consortium project that has for years generated huge amounts of important new data and analyses about various structural features and other aspects of genome organization. In this tutorial we will focus on the human and mouse data flowing into the UCSC Genome Browser via the Data Coordination Center (DCC) during the production phase of the project. We’ll describe the ENCODE portal that provides access to many project topics, and then move to exploring numerous data types in the Genome Browser. We will emphasize how to identify and locate data relevant to your research, and explore the data in the browser and other UCSC interfaces. We’ll examine visualization strategies and important track control features and track details. This tutorial assumes that the viewer has foundational knowledge of the UCSC Genome Browser and Table Browser tools. We also encourage viewers to access the consortium’s publication: The ENCODE Project Consortium (2011) A User's Guide to the Encyclopedia of DNA Elements (ENCODE).
