Overview of Chamaecrista Genomics Research
Genomics research requires:
- A biological question
- Computational methods to analyze the sequence data
- A critical researcher to evaluate the results and connect the results to larger picture
The Chamaecrista Explorer has been developed and evaluated with support from the National Science Foundation (DUE-0837375 and DEB-0746571.)
Using the Chamaecrista Genomics Explorer
Making sense of genomics data can be a bit daunting. The Explorer is designed to get you started analyzing genomics data by guiding you through five different strategies. You can start with any one of the strategies to ask and answer thoughtful questions. As you get more comfortable with the data, you'll find yourself combining several strategies to ask and answer more sophisticated questions. Approach the Explorer like you would a pick your own adventure type of book.
