This module focuses on Bioinformatics. Students are presented with an excerpt from Stephen J. O’Brien’s “Tears of the Cheetah,” which contains a real-life scenario using bioinformatics to identify an endangered species. Students will discuss various intriguing questions based on the reading. Students also learn how to use “BLASTn,” an online nucleotide-sequencing analysis tool from NIH.
