RNA-Seq Primer

This PowerPoint presentation provides a brief introduction to the different types of RNA-Seq evidence tracks (e.g. Bowtie, TopHat, Cufflinks) that are on the GEP UCSC Genome Browser.

Design and Use of RepeatMasker

Similar to the lecture notes on Repetitious DNA, this is a PowerPoint presentation given by Dr. Jeremy Buhler for the GEP faculty and TA workshops. This presentation covers the basics of RepeatMasker, as well as limitations of the program that students should be aware of.

Using BLAST for Genomic Sequence Annotation

Similar to the Lecture Notes on Alignment, this is a PowerPoint presentation given by Dr. Jeremy Buhler for the GEP faculty and TA workshops. This presentation covers the basics of alignment, essential for students to correctly interpret BLAST results.

Basics of BLAST

This PowerPoint presentation provides a brief introduction to the different kind of BLAST searches available.
