Step 3b: Pick a gene from IMG/EDU!The URL is http://img.jgi.doe.gov/cgi-bin/edu/main.cgi
IMG/EDU holds great first-pass annotations of genes with predictions that students can test using the GENI-ACT software. Dr. Scott ran through how to choose a genome using IMG in the "Interlude" section of this blog.
This movie shows how you can do a "Gene Search" in IMG to find a gene of interest (you could do an exercise with your students in advance to find out what they're interested in). You paste the Locus_ID into GENI-ACT and create an assignment based on this (Or these! You can do more than one!)
