IAP 2010: Bioinformatics Software Tool: BIOBASE

Learn how to use the BIOBASE Knowledge Library (BKL) and Human Gene Mutation Database (HGMD) bioinformatics tools licensed by MIT Libraries. Interested in systems biology, biomarkers, drug target discovery, and high-throughput data analysis? Learn to use HGMD, a comprehensive database on human germ-line mutations associated with disease, to determine whether a newly identified gene lesion is novel, search for an overview of known mutations within a given gene, or search for a particular type of gene mutation within a specific chromosomal location.

WHEN: Monday, January 11, 2 – 5pm

WHERE: DIRC, 14N-132
