The video walks the students to complete Module 1 and 2 on Sequence Similarly and Alignment adapted from Tapprich (2019) and Hudson Alpha that teaches these modules within the context of the SARS-COVID 2 virus.


To introduce Bioinformatics in my General Biology course, the two modules on sequence similarity and alignment were taught in lab. These modules supplemented concepts taught in the Genetics unit of my General Biology course. The modules and the accompanying worksheets were posted in the lab LMS (Sakai). This video resource and the accompanying PowerPoint slides walks the students to complete the modules and reduced their confusion, so they are able to work on the worksheets at their own time.
