Introduction to Bioinformatics
This website uses current genomic and proteomic databases to look at the basics of Life and Quasi-Life from the point of view of a gene. The tutorial emphasizes finding and comparing information about a gene by exploring its link to a disease, its DNA structure on a chromosome, its RNA structure during transcription, its protein structure, its occurrence in diverse organisms and what this teaches us about evolution.
This introduction consists of a sequence of topics and an exercise for each of these topics. The tutorials guide you through the bioinformatic topics based on a selected gene (or a protein, or an allele, etc.) and then helps the visitor to replicate that effort with a particular gene (or protein) of their choice.
