    Kate Rosenbloom has been a UCSC browser engineer since 2003, working to integrate scientific data sets and develop visualizations in the areas of comparative genomics, gene regulation, and gene expression, as well as contributing to efforts to improve user interface and overall usability of the site. She served for 5 years as technical project manager for the ENCODE Data Coordination center. Her recent work has focused on creating genome browser resources for the Genotype-Tissue Expression (GTEx) project.

    Kate will be available for meetings/consultations after the talk, if you are interested please contact Shifra (shifra.ben-dor@weizmann.ac.il)
    AbstractShow full text abstract about For the past several years, a main focus of the UCSC browser...»
    For the past several years, a main focus of the UCSC browser group has been developing data organization and display features in response to the massive expansion of data quantity and variety in the genomics field. There will be a short talk covering recent features motivated by these issues, highlighting two of the newest - the Track Collection Builder tool, and the new pairwise interaction ('interact') track type. This will be followed by a quick tour through some not-so-obvious browser features such as exon-only display, isoform hiding, highlights, and track reordering. There will be ample time for questions, reflections and suggestions about browser features and data.
