A great resource for instructors looking to create an inquiry-based introductory
biology lab. The site contains information and exercises on using 10 different
model organisms in the lab and potential research questions for students to
answer. It also contains links to scientists actively using these organisms in
their research, to scientific societies and other resources. This project is
supported by the Council on Undergraduate Research and NSF and is a great link
for active learning in laboratories.
