Tetrahymena Genome Database
The Tetrahymena Genome Database (TGD) is a wiki for the Tetrahymena research community. It provides a BLAST service, GBrowse genome browsers, and information on Tetrahymena genes and proteins.
The Ciliate Genome Consortium enables student participation in the functional annotation of genes from Tetrahymena thermophila. Students determine the functions of Tetrahymena genes through localization, expression, and gene knockout or over-expression studies. These research activities are packaged into modules to facilitate their integration into the undergraduate biology curriculum.
