Step 3b: Pick a gene from IMG/EDU!

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!)
