A Guided Inquiry in a Computer-based Biology Lab
Computer technology is used by the research teams of 3-4 students to search for background information for the guided inquiry, organize this information into a concept map, complete an electronic template (the TLNB: Team Lab Notebook), and analyze data with Microsoft Excel. A computer projection system is used to present their findings to the other teams. This format can be adapted to do open and guided inquiry laboratories in biology for both the major and non-major student. In addition it can

Dynamic Gene
Dynamic Gene is designed to let students learn about plant genomes by using bioinformatics to analyze newly sequenced genes in rice and maize. Many of these genes have only been predicted by computers and have never been closely examined by human beings! The site's name emphasizes the gene both as a dynamic structure that changes through evolutionary time, but also as a dynamic concept that changes with our increasing knowledge of genome organization. The design for Dynamic Gene recalls the "str
