  1. 1. Bioinformatics Databases: Biol3100 Assignment Rajiv Nariani rajivn@yorku.ca Science Librarian York University Libraries 14th June 2012 Chemistry Librarian Workshop (UfT)
  2. 2. Biology 3100: 2009-2011• Bioinformatics module has been a part of the 3rd year Biology assignment• Library catalogue, locating articles using STM databases, MeSH headings, critiquing articles, citing references, annotated bibliography, presentations – Bioinformatics assignment is one of the modules – Started with NCBI databases in 2009 – Tetrahymena Genome Database in 2010 – Other tools from EMBL, NCBI & SIB
  3. 3. Tetrahymena Assignment Open Reading Difference between ciliate mRNA to genomic Frames 6 code and standard alignment (Spidey) (Transeq, NCBI code, (BLAST databases, BLAST [NCBI], European ) Bioinformatics, PubMed) Molecular weight of Homologs, E- protein, isoElectric value (TGD) Point, amino acid Protein domains and composition functions (SIB, European (NCBI, European Bioinformatics) Bioinformatics, SIB) Restriction Enzymes(Enzyme cutters [EBI])
  4. 4. TGD: Genome, Genes & Proteins

  8. 8. TRASEQ
  9. 9. Conserved Domains
  10. 10. Assessment & Marking• Students complete survey of how they found all modules including bioinformatics• Detailed answer sets for 30 TTHERM genes and 30 proteins (Drosophila/Saccharomyces)• TA marks assignment• All students have usually got very high marks for this assignment
  11. 11. Some survey comments• “Didn’t know all these databases existed” to “I found it very confusing”• “Lot of information” for those who are beginning to “Very simple – did not take too much time”• “Will use it in my other courses – would like advanced courses in bioinformatics”
