This is a QR code. A QR Code is a 2-dimensional barcode, which has encoded in it a URL (web address), text, or other information. It can be read by a QR code scanner, including QR scanner smartphone apps. Once you have an app installed on your smartphone, open the app and hold your phones camera over a QR code to read it. Most QR codes youll come across have a URL encoded, so chances are when you read the QR code it will take you to a web page.

The goal of this project is to promote the use of molecular data in the identification and exporation of biological problems with an evolutionary perspective throughout biology curricula. This will be accomplished by providing undergraduate faculty and students access to the powerful state-of-the-art bioinformatics tools currently in use by the research community transformed to afford a cognitively supportive environment. These products will enable students to investigate current problems in biology using molecular biology tools and skills. The resource is under development, and would benefit from having Biology teachers try out the tools and provide feedback regarding future directions for development. Anyone can get a password and log-in FREE. But once you get your password, it can be difficult to get back to the Biology Student Workbench site. Be sure to bookmark the page - and contact the developers with your questions and comments if you get lost.
This site is designed to create and share materials to support students who are learning to use the Biology Workbench for Bioinformatics data analysis. So far, the text-based tutorials function somewhat like the user's manual that so many of us choose to ignore. Some of the examples show the instructor doing the thinking, with the risk that a student would learn to mimic how the instructor thinks. That is not how creative science proceeds. This project is a good attempt at making the tools of inquiry available to students, and my view is that this should be used as an opportunity to those who have found a successful approach to introduce bioinformatics tools to students to join this project to share resources.
