Speaker: Mr. Rick Westerman
Place: LAEB 2280; Tuesday, September 11, 2001, 4:30pm


The genomics era has ushered in an era where a high throughput sequencing facility can generate enough data in a matter of a week to confuse the researcher for the next three months. In this talk we will cover some of the genetics and genomics tools available on-campus and on the Internet. An overview of the VectorNTI and GCG sequence analysis packages as well as the ubiquitous BLAST program will be presented. The LTL (low throughput lab) facility will be used as an example of how to integrate databases with BLAST and other analyses. We will briefly cover the software packages used to analyze macro- and micro-arrays. Some of the available off-site resources will be discussed.
