Web Sites and Survey Courses

Klymkowsky, Michael, University of Colorado at Boulder: A collection of content information about introductory courses in the biological sciences. www.bioliteracy.net

Developmental Biology Course, University of Colorado at Boulder: Web site provides a format for introducing reading and analysis of primary scientific literature into a large lecture course. http://www.colorado.edu/catalog/current/search.pl?abbr=MCDB&num=4650

Six-Star Science: The American Physiological Society offers a community archive of "learning objects," or instructional materials, for teaching science to K-12 students and physiology to undergraduate, graduate, and professional students. The site also solicits contributions, which are reviewed by a committee before inclusion on the archive. http://www.the-aps.org/education/sixstarscience/index.htm

Course and Curricular Innovation

Research Explorations in Genomics, Washington University in St. Louis: A research-based course for upper-level students. http://www.nslc.wustl.edu/courses/Bio4342/bio4342.html

Studying the Genetic Basis of Disease Using Web-Based Bioinformatics Tools, Washington University in St. Louis: A computer-based research lab developed to provide an investigatory experience within a lecture course, to create a format for group work, and to introduce students to web-based bioinformatics tools and databases. http://www.nslc.wustl.edu/courses/Bio3055/bio3055.html

Undergraduate Quantitative Biology, University of California, Davis: A portal for the quantitative biology program which includes information on their intercollegiate minor in quantitative biology and bioinformatics, upper and lower division math and biology courses, and research opportunities.
