Learn to use the advanced features, including the Table Browser and custom tracks, of the UCSC Genome Browser with this free tutorial, sponsored by UCSC Genome Bioinformatics Group. The UCSC Genome Browser provides a way to query and extract 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. Obtain large lists of genes, SNPs, or any other features of interest, or display your own data, using the tools underlying the UCSC Genome Browser. This tutorial is the second in a series of tutorials on the UCSC Genome Browser and explores many aspects beyond the basic search and analysis functions covered in the introductory tutorial.
