DNA Subway Places Students On Fast Track To Plant Genome Analysis and DNA BarCoding.
Genome analysis provides opportunities for students to discover basic principles of molecular biology while embarking on research projects. DNA Subway is an educational platform for gene annotation and comparison. It bundles research-grade bioinformatics tools and databases into intuitive workflows and presents them in an appealing interface using the metaphor of a subway map. Riding on any of four different DNA Subway lines, users can predict and annotate genes in up to 150 kb of DNA (Red Line), identify homologs in sequenced genomes (Yellow Line), analyze DNA barcodes and construct phylogenetic trees (Blue Line), and analyze RNAseq data (Green Line). Work can be saved for later use and/or shared with other users. Workshop participants will use DNA Subway to upload and analyze DNA and protein data and learn how to integrate genome analysis into their own teaching.
