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.
GEP students will use the Report Form document to submit their annotation results for the Pathways Project. The Project Details Table handout will show students how to fill out the first page of the Annotation Report. The Report Form Exemplar is provided as an example of a completed report.
Students can apply what they learned in the Pathways Project: Annotation Walkthrough to construct a gene model for Rheb in D. pseudoobscura by completing the Pathways Project: Annotation Notebook. An answer key is provided to assist in checking the accuracy of the annotation and includes potential areas of confusion throughout.
The Pathways Annotation Notebook will help GEP students keep track of their work as they are annotating, and then they can use the notebook to fill out the report form. This notebook does not have to be submitted to GEP, it’s just an extra resource students might find helpful.
The Pathways Project is focused on annotating genes found in well characterized signaling and metabolic pathways across the Drosophila genus. This walkthrough illustrates how to apply the GEP annotation strategy for the Pathways Project to construct a gene model for the Ras homolog enriched in brain (Rheb) gene in Drosophila yakuba.
