NCBI Webinar on the dbGaP Data Browser - March 18th at Noon

Webinar title: Using the dbGaP Data Browser to browse aligned reads and genotypes from dbGaP.

The Database of Genotypes and Phenotypes (dbGaP) Data Browser provides access to aligned reads and genotypes from a variety of sequencing studies from dbGaP. The browser shows sample-level alignments - in the context of the genome sequence - with variants from dbSNP and known clinical variants such as those from ClinVar, as well as differences from the reference genome sequence. The browser allows you to filter the subjects by a variety of indexable values and, depending on your level of access, view-only or downloadable access to reads and genotypes.

This webinar will show you how to use the Data Browser to access aligned reads and genotypes, using the last exon of the APOE gene from an Alzheimer's disease study as an example.
