How to use the Database of Genomic Variants (DGV)

The Centre for Applied Genomics (TCAG) and the Ontario Genomics Institute (OGI) are hosting a 1 hour web conference/webinar about the Database of Genomic Variants (DGV) - a curated database that catalogues structural variation in the human genome, including copy number variations, segmental duplications, inversions, insertions, deletions, etc.

The webinar will be appropriate for all levels from graduate student to principal investigator, and can benefit both new and experienced researchers in the areas of genetics and genomic biology. The presentation will be led by Dr. Richard Wintle, Assistant Director at TCAG, The Hospital for Sick Children.

The webinar will include:

  • An overview of the DGV
  • How to browse and search the database
  • Examples of how the DGV can be used
  • Related resources (e.g., available control DNA samples)
  • Summary
