portion of the site houses a growing collection of educational materials
which use the Biology Workbench bioinformatics tool suite. The materials
include inquiry-based "laboratory units" which use the
Workbench to explore particular biological subject content, as well
as "tool-usage tutorials" intended primarily to familiarize
the user with paticular tools.
encourage teachers and students to use, adapt, and modify these
resources for their classroom or personal use! We also especially
encourage those who use these resources or develop their own materials
to share their materials, experiences, and ideas with the MSSW project.
An ideal place to share your MSSW resources and ideas is the Inquiry
Page. If you have written materials which use the Biology Workbench
that you would like to share, be sure to let us know so we can post
and/or link to them!
note for new users: because bioinformatics is an evolving science,
as new data come into online databases and tools are improved, the
results of tutorial exercises may be somewhat different from the
expectations of some tutorials, even though the principle to be
illustrated remains valid. If this happens, do not panic, but do
send us an email describing any significant discrepancy.
you new to the Molecular Science Student Workbench? Play around with these
provided tutorials to learn the basics of the interface and ways
to utilize this online tool. Explore the uses of the tools provided by the Molecular Science Student Workbench by performing these laboratory activities that involve both wet lab and dry lab activities.
