Webinar: Scan and Visualize Genomes with PatMatch and Circos in VICE

May 17, 2019 | Webinar

This webinar will present how to find sequence patterns and visualize data relationships with the PatMatch and Circos applications via CyVerse cyberinfrastructure. First, we will briefly demonstrate each of these tools and how CyVerse's Visual and Interactive Computing Environment (VICE) enables you to use them right now without having any arduous installations. Finally, we will show you how you can easily connect your data to these tools in CyVerse.

Wayne Decatur is a researcher in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Upstate Medical University. Decatur's work over the years has mainly centered on small noncoding RNAs and their associated proteins. However, he has also studied lamprey and fish, mining their genomes for clues to their evolutionary past and stunning abilities. Trained as a traditional wet lab molecular biologist, he attended a summer camp-style training on next generation sequencing a few years ago and continues to integrate computational tools and open science skills into his work. Convinced of their ability to enhance scientific communication and rigor beyond high-throughput applications, he regularly endeavors to share these tools and skills with other biologists.
