Skip to 0 minutes and 5 secondsHello, and 'Welcome to this Course' In the next three weeks, we're going to learn how to investigate whole bacterial genomes using the genome browser, Artemis. We're going to expand the bioinformatic tools that we need to investigate genes in the context of bacterial genomes. This course is intended for learners with some knowledge of how to investigate single genes and proteins using bioinformatics. This course is split into three Weeks. In the first Week, we learn the differences between reference and draft genomes. We will also take our first steps using Artemis. In the second Week, we will be looking at genome annotation and file formats.

Skip to 0 minutes and 41 secondsWe will also learn about GC (guanine-cytosine) content and how we can use this metric to look at functional blocks in the genome. The third Week, we'll be putting all this knowledge to the test with a short project where we compare two bacterial genomes and their gene content. By the end of this course, you will be able to use Artemis independently to investigate bacterial genomes. This knowledge has valuable implications in biomedical research, health care, and industry, providing a strong foundation for our understanding of bacterial pathogens. We encourage you to make use of the comments area, where you can post your suggestions and questions to other learners. We hope you enjoy the course.
