Dynamic Gene
Dynamic Gene is designed to let students learn about plant genomes by using bioinformatics to analyze newly sequenced genes in rice and maize. Many of these genes have only been predicted by computers and have never been closely examined by human beings! The site's name emphasizes the gene both as a dynamic structure that changes through evolutionary time, but also as a dynamic concept that changes with our increasing knowledge of genome organization. The design for Dynamic Gene recalls the "str
