EMBL-EBI: European Variation Archive

Thu 15 Feb 2018

Description

This interactive workshop offers participants hands-on experience in the use of the European Variation Archive, EVA. The EVA is an open-access, genetic variation data repository, currently hosting more than 80 studies describing in excess of 520 million unique variants. Participants will be shown how this data can be searched for at the study level via the EVA Study Browser, or at the individual variant level, via our Variant Browser. Finally, participants shall also be shown how to access this wealth of genetic variation data via the EVA API.

Also note: This event is part of a series of short introductions focusing on EMBL-EBI resources. If you want to learn more about these separate training events, see the Related Courses section below.
