CSci 3003: Introduction to Computing in Biology Lab Assignment #2 15 points Assigned: 1/27/10 Due: 2/2/10 Goals of this lab: Become familiar with using public databases for browsing gene information, obtaining sequence data. Get practice using the Linux environment for writing and running Perl scripts. Begin understanding Perl syntax, debugging programs. Part I: Finding a human disease gene for sequence analysis (1) Go to the Online Inheritance in Man (OMIM) database: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/sites/omim Read about the purpose and the history of the OMIM database at the bottom of the page. (2) Today, we’ll be using OMIM to pick a gene of your choice to serve as the focus of several bioinformatics analyses throughout the next few lab assignments. There are several different ways to browse the OMIM database, but you can start simply by typing the name of a disease in the search box (e.g. Alzheimer's). HINT: since we’re looking for a sequence, it will help to limit the search. You can do this by clicking the “Limits” tab and selecting the “* gene with known sequence” option under
