Studying Candida biology requires access to genomic sequence data in conjunction with experimental information that together provide functional context to genes and proteins, and aid in interpreting newly generated experimental data. The Candida Genome Database (CGD) curates the Candida literature, and integrates functional information about Candida genes and their products with a set of analysis tools that facilitate searching for sets of genes and exploring their biological roles. This

Starting with the guided tour of the CGD Home page and Locus Summary page, this unit shows how to navigate the various assemblies of the C. albicans genome, how to use Gene Ontology tools to make sense of large-scale data, and how to access the microarray data archived at CGD, as well as visualize high-throughput sequencing data through the use of JBrowse.
