hands-on tutorial

Learning about one gene across biological resources and formats

The questions this addresses are:
- How to employ bioinformatics resources to investigate a specific protein family (opsins)?
- How to navigate the Genome Data Viewer to find opsins in the human genome?
- How to identify genes associated with opsins and analyze their chromosome locations?
- How to explore literature and clinical contexts for the OPN1LW gene?
- How to use protein sequences files to perform similarity searches using BLAST?

The objectives are:
- Starting from a text search, navigate multiple web resources to examine multiple types of information about a gene, conveyed through multiple file formats.
