UCSC database was launched by the University of California Santa Cruz. This database provides fast access to sequences of so many vertebrates and model organisms and their associated information at different levels, also giving various tools for viewing, analyzing, and downloading data. Lateral information in different fields, such as identifying different sequences, EST, gene variants, and expression data, including fast access to RNA-seq, CHIP-seq data, and regulatory areas, are just a few examples for the capabilities of this database. One of the essential features of this database is the direct connection with other databases, including PubMed, GenBank, Entrez, and Omim, that has made all update information related to a gene available to users. Easy access to all information regarding protein-coding genes, non-coding genes such as lncRNAs and miRNAs, as well as regulatory and unidentified sequences, has provided extensive applications for users in different fields. To learn how to work with this useful tool, the OMITREEN research group has started to hold a one-day workshop online with the cooperation of the University of Isfahan. Contents:
