Date: Tuesday, August 19, 2008, 01:00 pm - 03:00 pm
Location: Room 138 Cargill
Instructor(s): Zheng Jin Tu, MSI

GenVision from DNASTAR Inc. is a software tool for generating high-quality postscript images for genomic data visualization from annotation data. It can create circular maps or linear maps. These images can be used for visualizing thousands of data points, monitoring project progress, comparing regions of similarity, and identifying areas of interest. This tutorial will introduce the main features of GenVision and go through steps for how to create input data, specify display features, customize image and layout, and generate the postscript image for genomes.

Prerequisites: Basic genome biology concepts
