Genome Solver - Complete Set of Lessons
By Anne Rosenwald, Gaurav Arora, and Vinayak Mathur
The Genome Solver Project began as a way to teach faculty some basic skills in bioinformatics - no coding or scripting. These Lessons also work well in the undergraduate classroom, culminating with an authentic community research project.
There are 6 Lessons in the Genome Solver Project
Each lesson contains a slide deck and transcript. Lessons II - V also have exercises to practice the tools introduced in that slide deck. Each of the first five lessons takes an hour or less of class time. By working through the first 5 lessons, participants will have the skills necessary to participate in the Community Science Project, an effort to understand the extent to which exchanges of genetic material from bacteriophages and bacteria drives bacterial diversity and evolution.
All 6 lessons have been shared as a series. To access each lesson from the full resource record, scroll down the page to find individual links to each lesson listed under “Contents”.
These materials can be used to provide training for undergraduate educators or students in the fundamentals of bioinformatics.
