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.
The Annotation Workflow is a one page summary of the annotation protocol for the Pathways Project. This workflow provides an overview of the key analysis steps and bioinformatics tools for the annotation of a putative ortholog.
This document describes the primary annotation goals to be included in the final oral presentation and written report for students enrolled in the Bio4342 course at WU.
This presentation illustrates the unusual genomic features that GEP students have encountered as part of their annotation of Muller F Elements from Drosophila ananassae and D. bipectinata. The Muller F Elements in these two species have undergone substantial expansion compared to D. melanogaster. The presentation describes the basic strategy for identifying pseudogenes, retrogenes, partial gene duplications, pseudogene clusters, and nuclear mitochondrial DNA segments (NUMT) within these F Element annotation projects.
Developed by Dr. Nick Reeves, this PowerPoint presentation describes the implementation of the GEP curriculum materials at Mt. San Jacinto Community College.
Developed by Dr. Nick Reeves at Mt. San Jacinto College, Menifee Valley Campus, this PowerPoint presentation provides a brief overview of the Digital Lab Notebook, which provides detailed guidance to students on the GEP annotation strategy.
