Default Writing Article about AT Gene family, where to find resources and info on it?



Hi, I am a chemistry b.s. transitioning into biology doing a post bac internship in genetics and have been given a very simple and general assignments but I have no idea of which resources to utilize. I have almost no background in biology informatics (can do protein blast, played around with genevestigator, but that's all--totally willing to learn)

I am not asking for somebody to do my assignment, obviously-- I just need pointers on where to find that information to write the aritcle and how to use them.

My assignment is to generate a short aritcle on the gene family in which the Arabidopsis gene At3g53990 is one of the members,

-- discovery of this gene family
--Definition of this gene family (conserved domain, key residues, etc.
--Overview of known functions of this gene family in other organisms
---Overview of this gene family in plants (homologues, expression, functions, etc.)

Where would I start? I tried googling but I don't understand many of the webistes that list information. Would this part of the Universal Stress protein family? What about gene family?
So confused..!

--Anybody know webistes showing me how to use BLAST/NCBI/etc etc?
I often can find information on google, but don't know what it means when reading it (EX: don't know what information correlates to what--like is this chart about protein or mRNA expression? etc)
