Overview

WormBase ParaSite is a sub-portal of the main WormBase website and is designed for researchers working on parasitic worm genomics. It provides genome sequence, genome browsers, semi-automatic annotation and comparative genomics data for approximately one hundred species, plus a number of other tools. 

In this webinar we will cover: 

  • Introduction to WormBase ParaSite data 
  • Accessing data via the species and gene pages 
  • Using the genome browsers 
  • Data mining with BioMart

Audience

This webinar is for researchers engaged in parasitic worm (flatworm and nematode) genomics. No prior knowledge of bioinformatics is required, but an undergraduate level understanding of biology and parasitology would be useful.
