Gene Annotation

Pandemic Flu Genomics Exercise

Dr. Robert Moss (Wofford College) has developed an annotation exercise on Influenza viruses.

Gene Annotation of Genomic DNA

Dr. James Bedard with students Amber Harlan and Joshua Machone presented a walkthrough on their annotation projects for a lunchtime talk series at Adams State College.

Detecting and Interpreting Genetic Homology

An introductory exercise using BLAST to annotate a region in the Drosophila melanogaster genome. Students can use this exercise to gain familiarity with performing BLAST searches and interpreting BLAST output. An answer key is provided for instructors.

FlyBase for Undergrads

Dr. Hui-Min Chung (University of West Florida) and her students have developed an instructional video aimed at introducing undergraduate students to the research tools available at FlyBase.

Bioinformatics Tools Tutorial Project – KRas

This lab is an updated, stand-alone version of the bioinformatics exercise originally developed for Bio 3055 at Washington University. This exercise introduces students to the genetic basis of disease using the KRas protein.

Investigating Gene Flow in Grasshopper Populations

Students use grasshoppers collected from glades in the Missouri Ozarks to generate and analyze sequence data to determine if the grasshopper populations are becoming fragmented due to the suppression of forest fires. Sequence data are provided here so students who do not have access to grasshoppers can still perform the sequence analysis portion of the lab.

RNA-Seq Primer

This PowerPoint presentation provides a brief introduction to the different types of RNA-Seq evidence tracks (e.g. Bowtie, TopHat, Cufflinks) that are on the GEP UCSC Genome Browser.
