Molecular Case Studies

"Structure and function" is a core concepts common to biology, chemistry, and biochemistry education. Currently, educators in these disciplines address this concept in a subject specific manner. A plethora of public biological databases, tools, and resources offer opportunities to learn about structure and function of biological molecules that are currently underutilized. Interdisciplinary approaches may help develop a deeper understanding structure function relationships. Case studies are being developed to introduce students to molecular structure visualization and help them bridge the gap between structure & function as well as biology & chemistry. These slides and the website presents Molecular CaseNet's current efforts in developing Molecular Case Studies. Look forward to your feedback on these efforts and hopefully to working with you to develop new cases and/or test current offerings.
