The Arabidopsis Information Resource

Tutorial and training materials by OpenHelix

Learn to use TAIR, the primary resource for molecular and genetic information on the higher seed plant and model organism Arabidopsis thaliana. The comprehensive data set that TAIR encompasses focuses on genomic and genetic data but also contains information on publications, protocols and the Arabidopsis research community. To aid in the navigation of this vast wealth of data, TAIR provides numerous searches, sequence data, and gene information tools which allow useful information to be retrieved quickly and efficiently.

You'll learn:

  • to perform basic searches and navigate several useful browsers
  • to browse genetic features within the context of the entire chromosome
  • to search detailed metabolic pathways
  • to perform nucleotide or amino acid sequence homology searches
