Undergraduate Research Publications in Bioinformatics

Congratulations to recent graduates James Robson and Kristin Wregglesworth on their research papers, published this week:

– Robson JF and Barker D (2015) Comparison of the protein-coding gene content of Chlamydia trachomatis and Protochlamydia amoebophila using a Raspberry Pi computer. BMC Research Notes, 8, 561. http://dx.doi.org/10.1186/s13104-015-1476-2

– Wreggelsworth KM and Barker D (2015) A comparison of the protein-coding genomes of two green sulphur bacteria, Chlorobium tepidum TLS and Pelodictyon phaeoclathratiforme BU-1. BMC Research Notes, 8, 565. http://dx.doi.org/10.1186/s13104-015-1535-8

In both cases the work was originally carried out as coursework for module BL4273 Bioinformatics for Biologists, at the University of St Andrews last year.

BL4273 uses the low-cost Raspberry Pi computer and our 4273pi operating system, customized for bioinformatics teaching and learning. To download 4273pi or find out more, see: http://eggg.st-andrews.ac.uk/4273pi
