As a new member of the network, I am attempting to survey sources for
molecular biology software that may have utility to the undergraduate
and graduate biology classroom.
At the University of Chicago, we are developing an Educational Bio-
Computing facility to enhance learning in the biolgical sciences (with a concentration on molecular themes). Our computer-assisted instruction interests
include a wide range of software options -- from laboratory research programs
(sequence analysis, enzyme kinetics, pattern searching, etc.) to informational
databases (including hypermedia) to sophisticated open-ended simulations and
If anyone can provide any informationa on such software, or can point us to
possible sources, we would be very appreciative.
Additionally, we would be intereted in hearing from other educators/researchers
who use computers to augment the learning process. Perhaps we could begin a
diaglogue to share ideas, experiences, etc.
