Synteny + Starterator Fields

| posted 08 May, 2018 23:27

I have noticed that there is a new "Synteny" box under the "Function" box. There is also a new drop-down menu near the Starterator link that gives options like "suggested start" and "not imformative". I haven't been able to find any documentation regarding these new additions; could you clarify what you'd like students to be writing there? I can guess, but I wonder if you'd like specific notes in the "synteny" box.

Thanks very much,
Amanda Freise
