The Ensembl project (www.ensembl.org) offers integrated genome, variation, gene regulation and comparative genomics data of mainly vertebrate genomes on an open access web browser platform. This webinar will introduce you to the analysis of Linkage Disequilibrium (LD) between variants with Ensembl. We will look at different ways to explore and visualise LD in the Ensembl genome browser website. We will discuss the new LD Calculator tool (https://www.ensembl.org/Homo_sapiens/Tools/LD?db=core) which has been released with Ensembl 91 and show how to use it.
This webinar is aimed at individuals who wish to learn more about analysing LD with Ensembl. No prior knowledge of bioinformatics is required, but an understanding of undergraduate level genetics would be useful.
