Gramene Webinar December 2016: Converting genomic coordinates between reference assemblies


The Gramene database is pleased to host another FREE 30-min webinar entitled "Gramene Browser: Converting genomic coordinates between reference assemblies".

With the increasing number of genome assemblies generated, mapping genomic coordinates between assemblies provides scientists a convenient way to relate annotations on different versions of the assemblies. During this webinar, Kapeel Chougule, a Computational Science Developer at the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, will demonstrate how to use the assembly converter tool available on Gramene to convert features annotated on one genome assembly to another.  He will demonstrate how to use the assembly converter tool using various input file formats, show different ways to bring in your data file, and navigate through the results.
