Compara alignments

Stephen Fitzgerald

This is the second compara module and looks at whole genome alignments. It is presented by Stephen Fitzgerald from the Ensembl comparative genomics team, who works on pairwise and multiple alignment of genomes from different species.

This module will teach you how to access alignments in the Ensembl database, including how to find syntenic regions and conservation scores.

There are 50 min of video in this module, and the exercises are expected to take you around 2-4 hours.
