Course Overview

This interactive module offers participants hands-on experience in the use of the Ensembl VEP to annotate genetic variants with the effects they have on Ensembl genes and known information about co-located variants. We will also look at known genes and variants, including the types of data available and where they come from.


No previous bioinformatics experience is required, but an undergraduate level knowledge of biology would be an advantage.
