Topic

RNA - Information Transfer [TRANSCRIPTOMICS]

Framing Question

Where are data about the transcriptome found (e.g., expression, epigenomics and structure) and how are they stored and accessed?

Learning Objectives

  • Identify the euchromatin/heterochromatin boundaries, histone states in a given sequence, and the nucleosome modifications
  • Compare and contrast DNA structure at telomeres and centromeres.
  • Describe the RNA databases available at NCBI (e.g., ESTs, UniGene).
  • Describe the types of metadata that accompany sequence data to make for useful biological interpretation (e.g. biological source, accession number, GeneID, journal articles, etc.).
