Unformatted text preview: BIOL 208 Tutorial 1 – GenBank and Gene Structure Before Tutorial: Gather Data ⋅ You will need to find the NCBI Flatfile of your assigned gene and bring it to the tutorial, either on your laptop or as a printout. ⋅ You will also need to be aware of you group ID. During Tutorial: Data Analysis: 1. Each group member can introduce themselves to the group in a one- minute summary: a. Name b. Program c. Year d. Share an interesting fact about yourself e. Why are you taking this course? 2. Review the information provided in the flat file. Explore the links to other databases to learn as much as you can. 3. List the size of each intron and exon. 4. List the length of the UTRs. 5. How many different transcripts are transcribed from this gene? 6. How does the description of your gene compare with the gene structure model? Thinking Question: Due the following Monday by Noon This mutant was recovered this gene from a screen/selection experiment. Based on what you have read, describe how this mutant was identified. (ie: Where is this gene expressed? What processes is it involved in? What is the mutant phenotype?) Using this information, prepare a clear, concise, 200- word summary as a group. Reminder: Cite your sources! Use the format of the Journal of Molecular Biology. ⋅ In- text citations are superscript numbers ⋅ List the references in the order they appear in your text ⋅ Example: o Sanger, F. & Coulson, A.R. (1975). A rapid method for determinig sequences in DNA by the primed synthesis with DNA polymerase. J. Mol. Biol. 94, 441- 448. ⋅ For more information, visit: http://www.elsevier.com/wps/find/journaldescription.cws_home/622890/aut horinstructions BIOL 208 ...
