StarORF – Identification of the Protein(s) Encoded within a DNA sequence

StarORF

:: DESCRIPTION

StarORF facilitates the identification of the protein(s) encoded within a DNA sequence. Using StarORF, the DNA sequence is first transcribed into RNA and then translated into all the potential ORFs (Open Reading Frame) encoded within each of the six translation frames (3 in the forward direction and 3 in the reverse direction).

StarGenetics – Mendelian Genetics Cross Simulator

StarGenetics

:: DESCRIPTION

StarGenetics is a Mendelian genetics cross simulator. StarGenetics allows students to simulate mating experiments between organisms that are genetically different across a range of traits to analyze the nature of the traits in question. Its goal is to teach students about genetic experimental design and genetic concepts.

Protein Investigator 3.0.2 – Simulation of Protein Folding

Protein Investigator 3.0.2

:: DESCRIPTION

Protein Investigator gives students an opportunity to interactively explore protein structure and function in a simplified system. This is a highly-simplified model of protein folding. It is not intended to predict the correct structures of any proteins; it is designed to illustrate the major principles involved in that process.

GenePool 6 / Swimbots 1.0 – Artificial Life Simulation

GenePool 6

:: DESCRIPTION

GenePool is a computer simulation where hundreds of virtual organisms evolve swimming skills. These organisms are called “swimbots”. You can set mate preference criteria and thus influence what the swimbots consider as attractive qualities in potential mates. The most attractive swimbots get chosen most often to have little babies, and so their genetic building blocks propogate to future generations. Eventually, swimbots get better at pursuing each other, competing for food, and becoming babes to other swimbots. Local gene pools emerge which compete for sex and food (for energy to have more sex). Eventually a dominant sub-population takes over.
