Introduction to Genome Annotation, 1 hp

The official deadline has passed, but late applications may be submitted by email.

The focus of the course will be on non-model eukaryote organisms, and in particular the structural annotation of protein coding genes. We will use de novo gene finders, protein alignments and rna-seq data to infer the structure of genes, and show how to combine these different lines of evidence to get the most stable and informative annotation. We will also infer the function of these genes using similarity to known proteins as well as the presence of functional domains.
