On the first day of the SCALE-IT 2012 tutorial (Jan12/2012) we where introduced to several databases and programs that we could use to develop curricular tools for the science courses we’re teaching.
From the databases that we used I found Gapminder to be an excellent tool for my courses in Microbiology and Immunology. The database has an enormous collection of statistics data related to epidemiology that I will definitely be using in my courses.
The Protein Database, Protopedia and PyMol are also databases and programs that I’m intending to use in my Immunology and Biochemistry courses. They provide a great way to help students visualize molecular structure data
