Geneious Tutorials are an excellent interactive way to learn more of the functionality on your own, or as a a teaching tool for bioinformatics. Our tutorials have all been created using real data from real research by real researchers, so your students do real bioinformatics analysis, interpret the results and answer important questions. Download any one of the tutorials below to begin the interactive learning process.
Within 2 hours you will know all the core elements of bioinformatics in Geneious, and have experienced "doing it" for yourself. Covers basic techniques in downloading, analysing and manipulating DNA/protein sequence data. Written by Dr Michael Bunce, Murdoch University, Australia.
Learn how to use the Microsatellite plugin for Geneious to fit a ladder, call peaks, bin alleles and produce a table of genotypes.
Learn how to use the Geneious Sequence Search function to find sequences by similarity using BLAST and other programs. This tutorial doesn't contain any questions. Written by Dr Shane Sturrock, Biomatters Ltd, New Zealand.
Explore the controls in the Geneious 3D structure viewer and learn how to use it to visualize active sites in a protein structure. This tutorial doesn't contain any questions. Written by Dr Shane Sturrock, Biomatters Ltd, New Zealand.
Learn about the parts of a phylogenetic tree and how to view and manipulate trees with Geneious. Written by Dr Howard Ross, University of Auckland, New Zealand.
Learn how to engineer a GFP fusion protein in Geneious. Along the way you will find restriction sites, design primers for cloning, introduce a cut site using PCR and clone an insert into a plasmid vector.
Plant Molecular Genetics
Annotate plant DNA sequences using BLAST and multiple alignment, then learn how to read a phylogenetic tree to explore genetic distance. Written by Dr Jack da Silva, University of Adelaide, Australia.
Perform forensic DNA analysis on a sample to determine if it is bear bile. You will assemble and edit chromatographs and use BLAST and phylogenetics to identify the sample. Written by Dr Michael Bunce, Murdoch University, Australia.
In this tutorial you will take typical raw sequence data produced from a Sanger sequencing run and learn how to edit and align chromatographs for downstream analyses such as building a phylogenetic tree or calculating nucleotide diversity.
HIV Molecular Evolution
Use Geneious to investigate the evolutionary origins of human immunodeficiency viruses (HIVs) using molecular phylogenetic tools. Written by Dr Jack da Silva, University of Adelaide, Australia.
Develop the skills needed to align pairs of DNA and protein sequences with Geneious using dotplots and alignment algorithms. Written by Dr Shane Sturrock, Biomatters Ltd, New Zealand.
Learn how to create your own tutorials
This tutorial walks you through creating your own teaching material including all the examples you need. Written by Dr Shane Sturrock, Biomatters Ltd, New Zealand.
