A step-by-step tutorial that takes the student through a gene identification problem in a chimpanzee BAC sequence using predictions from a gene prediction program (Genscan), the UCSC Browser and BLAST.
This exercise allows students to learn how to use mRNA and Expressed Sequence Tags (ESTs) evidence to assist their annotation efforts. An answer key is available for instructors.
This PowerPoint presentation examines the use of gene prediction programs (such as Genscan) in annotation, noting some of the limitations of gene prediction programs in creating putative gene models. It also introduces the UCSC and other browsers as sources of supporting evidence.
