BioQUEST Notes 2.2 Part 1

 

The BioQUEST curriculum in the field test is composed of 13 modules. This file lists the modules and their authors.


Each module employs a piece of computer software. Some computer programs are custom simulations, such as Genetics Construction Kit in Module 1; some are research tools, such as Extendª in Module 13; and some are generic tools, such as the word processor in Module 2. Each module has a chapter in the BioQUEST book to introduce the task or problem domain and demonstrate applications of techniques to solving problems in that domain.

Four HyperCardª stacks: Genetics, Biochemistry/Biotechnology, Physiology, and Ecology/ Evolution are ultimately planned to unite the modules.

More information is available on these modules in the Descriptions/Reviews folder.
