Ensembl browser workshop, Stella Maris College, 4-6 August 2021

04 Aug 2021 - Stella Maris College: Virtual

Work with the Ensembl Outreach team to get to grips with the Ensembl browser, accessing gene, variation, comparative genomics and regulation data, and mine these data with BioMart.

ESHG W10: Using the Ensembl Variant Effect Predictor (VEP) to interrogate disease-associated variants

30 Aug 2021 - Virtual

This workshop will guide you through the Ensembl/GENCODE and MANE annotation process, allowing you to experience the challenges involved in annotation and transcript selection. You will also learn how to use the Ensembl VEP to map genetic variants onto Ensembl/GENCODE transcripts and other Ensembl annotation including regulatory regions and regions of evolutionary conservation to determine their likely functional effects and filter to prioritise variants.

ASHG 2021 Ancillary Workshop: Using the Ensembl genome browser to interrogate disease-associated variants

18 Oct 2021 - Virtual

Genetic variation between individuals results in a range of human phenotypes, from differences in the immune response against transmissible diseases, such as COVID-19, to rare developmental disorders. The Ensembl genome browser and Variant Effect Predictor (VEP) toolset allows fast and flexible interrogation and annotation of genetic variants to predict functional consequences in the context of the Ensembl/GENCODE and RefSeq genesets, allowing further variant filtering and prioritisation.
This virtual workshop will introduce you to the principles of interrogating variation data using the Ensembl genome browser. You will also learn how to use the Ensembl VEP to map genetic variants onto Ensembl/GENCODE transcripts and other annotation including the MANE Select and MANE Plus Clinical transcript sets, regulatory regions and regions of evolutionary conservation to determine their likely functional effects.
The workshop is aimed at new and existing Ensembl users, from the wet-lab, diagnostic and industry communities. There are no prerequisites for this workshop.
