This session introduces bioinformatics using a case study of pathogenic bacterial identification via a Howard Hughes Medical Institute's virtual lab and NCBI web database searches. Another goal is to get the students thinking, writing and talking about the impact of the human genome project. Our students do the exercise independently coming together in the laboratory to present and discuss their findings--this feature makes the exercise feasible for large or small classes with limited laboratory computer resources. The sub-theme of this session is the use of virtual laboratories (vlabs) re-enforcing scientific concepts and methods to supplement lectures, tutorials or "wet" labs. (less)

Rather than focus on the scientific details of this discovery, this chapter gives an overview of the important concepts related to DNA's initial discovery and later research conducted in this field. Teachers can use the lesson plans and materials to help students understand these fundamental concepts and gain a command of the vocabulary necessary to discuss them. Given the amazing advances in biological research and the new knowledge that has become available to human beings about their own biological makeup, it is important for students to know basic concepts related to DNA research and the human genome project. This following lesson provides a basic introduction to this topic in an interactive fashion. (less)

The issue-focused, peer-reviewed article ponders the discovery of the double helix 50 years ago, and how DNA databases freely distribute information on the human genome. It also shows how its use can lead to ethical issues, such as: germline engineering used solely for enhancement, the privacy of genetic information, mandatory genetic screening, and genetic testing of newborns.

DNAi Location: Genome>The Project>putting it together>Sequencing and assembly To begin the sequencing process, several copies of a section of DNA (represented here as a page of text) are cleaved to produce smaller fragments. Although it looks fairly orderly, this step is small-scale \"shotgun,\" which creates numerous random fragments. Each fragment is sequenced, then computer programs align the overlap between fragments to build up an entire page. Marker sequences (shown in yellow) help establish the order of pages in the \"book of life.\" This methodical process produced huge amounts of data that have been used to virtually reassemble our genome. However, there are gaps. Repeat sequences are common in the human genome, so repeats from entirely different chromosome regions may be erroneously joined together. It will take many years to detect mismatches caused by the repeat sequences. Some regions, especially near the centromeres, may never be fully finished. (less)

Think of how many letters fit on a single page and now imagine a stack of pages three hundred feet tall. That's how much information is stored in the DNA inside every human cell: the entire human genome. If you sort through the three billion letters that make up the human genome, you find some surprising things. Only about 1% of the three billion letters directly codes for proteins. Of the rest, about 25% make up genes and their regulatory elements. The function of the remaining letters is still unclear. Some of it may be redundant information left over from our evolutionary past. (less)

We have catalogued the protein kinase complement of the human genome (the í˘ŒóŒěkinomeí˘ŒóŒ) using public and proprietary genomic, complementary DNA, and expressed sequence tag (EST) sequences. This provides a starting point for comprehensive analysis of protein phosphorylation in normal and disease states, as well as a detailed view of the current state of human genome analysis through a focus on one large gene family. We identify 518 putative protein kinase genes, of which 71 have not previously been reported or described as kinases, and we extend or correct the protein sequences of 56 more kinases. New genes include members of well-studied families as well as previously unidentified families, some of which are conserved in model organisms. Classification and comparison with model organism kinomes identified orthologous groups and highlighted expansions specific to human and other lineages. We also identified 106 protein kinase pseudogenes. Chromosomal mapping revealed several small clusters of kinase genes and revealed that 244 kinases map to disease loci or cancer amplicons. (less)
