The lecture notes from a presentation by Bob Fulton point out some of the more advanced features of Consed, the base caller phred, and the assembler phrap. This document should be read after students have some experience using Consed but before they begin working on their fosmids.
This PowerPoint presentation provides a general overview of the hybrid assemblies produced by the Baylor College of Medicine Human Genome Sequencing Center as part of the Drosophila modENCODE project. This presentation provides a brief introduction to the source of the raw sequence data and the protocol used by BCM-HGSC to construct the draft D. biarmipes genome assemblies.
This lecture by Dr. Sarah Elgin (Washington University in St. Louis) provides a general overview of the Genomics Education Partnership. It describes the current GEP research problem of identifying factors involved in heterochromatin formation and maintenance through comparative genomics in Drosophila.
A step-by-step tutorial that takes the student through a gene identification problem in a chimpanzee BAC sequence using predictions from a gene finder (Genscan), the UCSC Browser and BLAST.
This PowerPoint presentation provides a brief primer on the recommended annotation strategy for Drosophila projects. The presentation provides an overview of the goals of the GEP annotation project, an introduction to RNA-Seq, web databases, and a discussion on the phases of the splice donor and acceptor sites.
