This project was prepared as part of a BioQUEST faculty development workshop entitled Bioinformatics in Biology Education: Working with Sequence, Structure and Function at Cornell University in October 2003. 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:

Brief Overview:

Find Arabidopsis micro-array data sets related to bacterial pathogenesis and connect them to GO using GenMAPP and MAPPfinder and become familiar with pathways in Arabidopsis containing gene products affected by bacterial attack/disease; observe where richer GO development on the plant side would be useful
