Genome Solver began as a way to teach undergraduate faculty some basic skills in bioinformatics; no coding or scripting is required. Part I is the Introduction to the Genome Solver Project.
The Introduction provides a summary of the materials to be covered in the subsequent 5 lessons and discusses the goals of the Genome Solver Project as a whole.
Contained within this lesson is the powerpoint slide deck, a transcript for this slide deck, and an introductory lesson on BLAST (Basic Local Alignment Search Tool) should this be necessary. Familiarity with BLAST is important for the subsequent lessons.
