Code Club

During the fall and winter of 2014, I ran an online code club with some of my bootcamp cohort mates.

Here's a playlist of those sessions.


  • G3: Genes | Genomes | Genetics
    The Muller F element (4.2 Mb, ~80 protein-coding genes) is an unusual autosome of Drosophila melanogaster; it is mostly heterochromatic with a low recombination rate. To investigate how these properties impact the evolution of repeats and genes, we manually improved the sequence and annotated the genes on the D. erecta, D. mojavensis, and D. grimshawi F elements and euchromatic domains from the Muller D element.
