This project was prepared as part of a BioQUEST faculty development workshop entitled Implementing Bioinformatics in Introductory Undergraduate Biology Courses:
Exploring Microbiology, Molecular Data and Visualization
at San Diego Supercomputing Center in January 2007. The BioQUEST Curriculum Consortium is committed to the reform of undergraduate biology instruction through an emphasis on engaging students in realistic scientific practices. This approach is sometimes characterized as an inquiry driven approach and is captured in BioQUEST's three P's (problem-posing, problem-solving, and peer-persuasion). As part of this workshop groups of faculty were encouraged to initiate innovative curricular projects. We are sharing these works in progress in the hope that they will stimulate further exploration, collaboration and development. Please see the following links for additional information:
