Tutorials for Gene Research

Through a collaboration between MIT Engineering and Science Libraries and Harvard's Countway Library, brief video tutorials of UCSC Genome Browser and NCBI BLAST are now available. The UCSC Genome browser provide access to reference sequences for a number of genomes. Tutorials provided for this browser are as follows:

  • Getting DNA Sequence
  • Using Annotation Tracks
  • Intron-Exon Boundaries
  • Searching with BLAT
NCBI's BLAST is a tool for nucleotide or protein comparisons. The tutorials related to BLAST are as follows:

  • BLAST Link
  • Do I Need BLAST? The Use of the Related Sequences Tool
  • Nucleotide BLAST
  • Nucleotide BLAST: Algorithm Comparison
