Event Details

The Centre for Applied Genomics (TCAG) and the Ontario Genomics Institute (OGI) are hosting a 1 hour webinar about the new, updated version of the Database of Genomic Variants (DGV) – a curated database that catalogues structural variation in the human genome. 

The new version of the DGV has an upgraded genome browser, as well as a query tool, which allows users to search a significantly enriched dataset, including details on samples, methods, platforms and analyses performed for each study.

The webinar will be appropriate for all levels from graduate student to principal investigator, and can benefit both new and experienced researchers in the areas of genetics and genomic biology.  The presentation will be led by Jeff MacDonald, DGV curator, at TCAG, The Hospital for Sick Children.

The webinar will include:

·         An overview of the DGV

·         Introduction to the query tool and new genome browser

·         Browsing and searching the database

·         Examples of how the DGV can be used

·         Summary

Attendees will be required to register. Follow the link below to register and please be sure to provide your name, status (student, PI, etc.) and affiliation (i.e. whose lab).
