There are 6 Lessons in the Genome Solver Project
- Lesson I - Introduction
- Lesson II - Databases
- Lesson III - Annotation
- Lesson IV - Comparative Genomics
- Lesson V - Phylogenetics
- Lesson VI - The Community Science Project on Horizontal Gene Transfer
- Lesson VII - Synteny
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, lecture and exercise. 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.
Materials were updated as of Fall 2018. Note that because the slide decks and exercises point to external websites and web-based tools, some of the illustrations contained in the materials may not look exactly like the live website. Functionality is usually unchanged.
Fall 2019 - Added a new Lesson on Synteny.
