Possible Audiences:

General Biology Physiology  

 
 


Brief Overview:

Use of insulin and insulin receptor as a model system; Compare sequence data for both; Compare structures of each; Use as an example to the more complex cellular signaling mechanism; Use comparison of insulin & receptor sequences as a model for interspecific rates of change (co-evolution).  

 
   
 


Project Materials:

Biology Workbench, PubMed, molecular models
