Groups for Phase II Projects

Please respond with a comment to this post sharing some information about a group you are forming. Include some information about who is in the group, what you are thinking of working on, other expertise you are looking for, etc.

We will massage the groups tomorrow to make sure that everyone is situated in a productive way.

    Debra & Robin

    Design a module for relating scoring in a multiple alignment to structure. Starting with algorithms for multiple alignment and concepts of scoring schemes and end with a three dimensional structure painted with conservation.

    Project Description: Exploration of a Hypothetical/Putative Protein

    Summary: The goal of this project is to provide students with the experience of exploring the structure and function of a protein that is labeled “hypothetical” or “putative” in the databases.

    1) To learn about protein families (e.g., kinase) and domains (e.g. DNA-binding)
    2) To develop a scientifically-relevant hypothesis about protein structure and function.
    3) To develop competence and experience with computational research tools and databases.

    Our project is to provide experiences in an introductory cell biology class bridging evolution and cell structure and function. Taking advantage of the fact that all eukaryoitic cells have either two (animal) or three genomes (plants) provide experiences that will have students carry out exercises requiring sequence comparisons, generation of phylogenetic trees, analysis and comparison of protein three dimensional structures. The goal is to encourage a deeper understanding of cell structure and function and the evolution of the eukaryotic cell.

    We are developing an introductory lecture for Matematical Biology Class using a growth in biology. We want to introduce core idea of mathematical and computational tools for biology.

    Group: J. de Varona, E. Arteaga and NEED a Biologist!

    Project Description: Design an activity using excel or Google docs, to visualize data obtained from the analysis of segments of DNA sequences that could be used for a paternity test.

    Objective: Understand the concept of repetitive DNA segments in the human genome and its applications in the identification of individuals.

    Activity could be usefull for stuents lo learn how maninupalate data using excel.

    We did a soundless yodio for our project. We are a subgroup of the ‘megagroup’ working on genes, gene annotation, protein, and protein structure. We have the first part.
