Quick Start Guide

This Quick Start Guide provides a minimum set of presentations, walkthroughs, and exercises that are designed to prepare students to participate in the F Element annotation projects. The Quick Start Guide is organized around five major concepts and tools. The curriculum materials listed under the first three concepts/tools can be used for other GEP scientific projects. The curriculum listed under concepts/tools 4 and 5 are specific to the F Element project. These materials assume that students have a basic background in molecular genetics.
