Possible Audiences:

undergraduates and graduates in biology or bioinformatics, educators in HS and undergraduate institutions and home schoolers  

 
 


Brief Overview

Questions to ask: What are the differences at the molecular level between cancer cells and normal cells? What are the differences in gene expression between cancer cells and normal cells? Can you guess at the functions of genes and cellular processes that might differ between cancer cells and normal cells? Are there any differences at the molecular level between different cancer cells?
