Accessing variant data at the European Variation Archive
The European Variation Archive (EVA) is a primary open repository for archiving, accessioning, and distributing genome variation including single nucleotide variants, short insertions and deletions (indels), and larger structural variants (SVs) in any species.
This webinar will demonstrate how to access the latest EVA release, consisting of submitted variants clustered into RS IDs. It will also provide an overview of the recent updates to this data including what species have had their variant data remapped and how we annotate remapped variant data.
Who is this course for?
This webinar is aimed at individuals working with variation data who wish to learn about submitting and accessing data in the EVA. No prior knowledge of bioinformatics is required, but undergraduate level knowledge of biology would be useful.
By the end of the webinar you will be able to:
- Access EVA release data
- Describe how variant data is remapped
- Query annotated remapped data
