Brief Overview:

We want to provide our students with materials that will encourage active learning. It seems reasonable to look for material that has local flavor, as this may increase their interest. Yet, eventually, we want to be able to use material from colleagues in other places, which will give our students the chance to learn about people in other places.  


Project Materials:

Biology Workbench Mesquite Swiss Prot Data Bank Gen Bank
