DNA Subway Puts Students On Fast Track To Gene Annotation And Genome Analysis.

Annotating and comparing genome sequences can bring to life elements of gene structure and function that previously could only be approached as abstractions. Assembling gene models and comparing genes engages students in their own learning, as they acquire a range of conceptual and process knowledge. DNA Subway ( is a simplified and intuitive bioinformatics platform to annotate DNA sequences, construct gene models, build phylogenetic trees, and analyze next-generation sequencing data. Workshop participants will use DNA Subway to upload and analyze DNA and protein data and learn how to integrate genome analysis into their own teaching.
