Parasitoid Wasps Project: Annotation Walkthrough

This exercise will walkthrough an example of annotating a wasp venom gene for the Parasitoid Wasps Project. It will discuss wasp versions of common GEP annotation tools—Genome Browser, Gene Record Finder, and Gene Model Checker—and provide background for the interpretation of data tracks that are unique to the Parasitoid Wasps Project.

Annotation Unix Worksheet

Exercise that uses UNIX tools (command-line BLAST and RepeatMasker) for gene annotations.

Gene Annotation using GEP Tools

Dr. Julie Emerson (Amherst College) has developed a simple introduction to the GEP annotation project for the 2012 ABLE conference. This set of documents provides an overview of the GEP’s scientific and educational goals and then goes through examples of how GEP materials are being utilized at multiple colleges and universities, focusing on gene annotation in an introductory biology course at Amherst College.

The Human Genome and Personalized Medicine

Developed by Dr. Anya Goodman (California Polytechnic State University) and Dr. James Youngblom (California State University Stanislaus), this computer laboratory is designed to introduce students to the analysis of DNA sequences and to the effects of bioinformatics on access to health information by scientists, doctors, and the general public.

Plant Genes Annotation and Analysis

This is a series of three 3-hour exercises that guide students on the DNA Subway, an online workspace that integrates tools for genomic analysis in a student and educator-friendly environment. Exercise 1 was developed by Dr. Judy Brusslan (California State University, Long Beach). The Exercise I and II PowerPoints and Exercise II were developed by Dr. James Youngblom (California State University Stanislaus). The “Prospecting for Green Revolution Genes” presentation and Exercise III were developed by Dr. Nicholas Ewing (California State University, Sacramento) based on materials initially developed by members of the iPlant Collaborative.

Finding Genes in a New Fly Genome

This exercise was developed by Dr. Anya Goodman (California Polytechnic State University) and Dr. James Youngblom (California State University, Stanislaus). This exercise engages students in annotating genomic DNA from less famous species of Drosophila while teaching basic bioinformatics skills.
