We have purchased HGMD and was wondering how we can get a track into GenomeBrowse.

Hi Erin,

From what we have seen with other customers if you purchase a GenomeTrax download license from HGMD that will include a download of the HGMD data in BED format. From the sample files they have available as long as the BED files are sorted they can be loaded directly into GenomeBrowse for visualization.

HGMD data includes information from both the COSMIC and the dbNSFP databases, we already have current tracks available in GenomeBrowse for both of these tracks. You can access them for streaming or download from the Annotations tab of the Add dialog.

Since HGMD does not provide a public download of the data we are unable to create a single publicly available annotation track for all the data available. I can however put you in contact with our Services Department so they can work with you and the data you have available from HGMD to put together a private single annotation track with the available information.

Please let me know how we can assist your further.

Thanks, Jami...
