Chimp Chunk Projects without Student Reports
Additional chimp chunk projects without student reports. Please contact Dr. Chris Shaffer for instructions on how to create additional chimp annotation projects.
Following the step-by-step tutorial “Chimp BAC Analysis: Genes and Pseudogene”, students should be ready to annotate a chunk of chimpanzee DNA themselves, presenting evidence to support their claim of a gene or pseudogene. An example student report from the Bio 4342 course at WU is available here.
Brief guidelines with advice on annotating chimpanzee DNA, including what to put in the final report.
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.
