The new Human Genome Resources site: a portal for exploration of the human genomeMonday, December 12, 2016
The new Human Genome Resources site offers access to visualization and analysis tools available for the human genome, as well as other relevant tools like BLAST, the NCBI remapping service and databases that provide human molecular data. The resources are sorted into categories like Find, View, Download and Learn, making it easier to find what you need.
Some specific goals that you can accomplish through the site's guidance are:
- Finding information on individual genes that NCBI RefSeq staff annotate on the human genome assemblies and are archived in the Gene database.
- Visualizing and analyzing the genome by accessing individual chromosomes in the Genome Data Viewer and other available viewers.
- Comparing your sequences with the sequences of the human genome assemblies (BLAST).
- Navigating to the clinical and variation data through the complete listing of NCBI's clinical and variation resources.
- Accessing details about the human genome assemblies and annotation.
- Accessing various large datasets for download on the NCBI FTP site.
- Remapping annotation data between different assemblies (NCBI Genome Remapping Service).
In addition, the portal includes an extensive listing of learning resources that may help you have a better understanding of the wealth of information associated with the human genome.
