Protein Evolution part of Examples
In this activity students explore the evolution of proteins by comparing 2D and 3D alignments of orthologs and paralogs.
Long Term Ecological Resources part of Examples
Students analyze data on temperature and precipitation collected from 26 different Long Term Ecological Research sites and compare them with annual net primary productivity. The students then form an ecological rule to explain their results.
Plant Pest Control part of Examples
This learning experience introduces participants to scientific inquiry, hypothesis formation, experimental design, data analysis, and interpretation.
Searching Genbank part of Examples

Writing a Wikipedia Genetic Disease Article part of Examples
Writing a Wikipedia article about a genetic disease is a good culminating activity for a genetics course or module, as it requires synthesizing and interpreting a wide range of genetic information. This assignment also includes a potential service component, which is normally very difficult in genetics.
Ocean Circulation part of Examples
Students view and analyze buoy, satellite, temperature vs. depth data to learn about ocean circulation and how is related to atmospheric circulation.
Comparing Sunscreens part of Examples
Students use a microcomputer connected to an ultra-violet sensor to compare the relative blocking power of different SPF sunscreens for the UVB region of the solar spectrum.
Where is North? part of Examples
