CpG Educate

The CpG Educate online software allows users to explore the mathematics of finding CpG islands in genomic data. The software was designed as a companion to the book ”Mathematical Concepts and Methods in Modern Biology,” edited by Raina Robeva and Terrell Hodge. This document serves as a brief user’s guide to the various features of the software. Specific questions not covered in this guide may be sent to the author via email (listed above). The CpG Educate website can be found at http://inspired.jsu.edu/ agarrett/cpg/index.htm. The software has been most fully tested using Google’s Chrome browser, and users are recommended to access the suite through Chrome. The online tools are broken into three groups, each focusing on a different problem or approach. These three groups are described in more detail in the following sections.
