For most applications (except de novo sequencing), you will need reference data in the form of a reference genome sequence, annotations, known variants etc. There are three basic ways of obtaining reference data tracks:
- Import tracks from files (learn more in Import tracks from file).
- Standard Import ()
- The standard import accepts common data formats like fasta, genbank etc. (learn more in Bioinformatic data formats)
- Use the special plugins that integrate with Biobase's Genome Trax (learn more at http://www.clcbio.com/clc-plugin/biobase-genome-trax-download/).
