Importing gene symbol data into Excel correctly

Microsoft Excel (and some other spreadsheet programs) used with default settings automatically converts some gene symbols from text format into a date, such as the SEPT* and MARCH* gene symbols. This video shows how to import gene symbol data (CSV or tab separated) into Excel so that you can avoid introducing these errors. The video uses Excel 2016 for Mac but the same procedure can be done on Windows versions and previous Excel versions. View in 720P
