Bioinformatics in Undergraduate Education: Practical Examples
Boyle, John A.

Bioinformatics has emerged as an important research tool in recent years. The ability to mine large databases for relevant information has become increasingly central to many different aspects of biochemistry and molecular biology. It is important that undergraduates be introduced to the available information and methodologies. We present a problem-based approach for incorporation of bioinformatics into existing courses. Examples of exercises are presented along with resources available on the World-Wide Web.
