Molecular Science Student Workbench

Logo for Molecular Science Student Workbench
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... More

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.
