Created as a joint initiative from the Baylor College of Medicine and Scitable by Nature Education, "Bench to Blackboard" offers up interactive modules that explore genetics via interactive quizzes, worksheets, and a range of additional thoughtful materials. The materials here are suitable for "educators and all life-long learners" and they are divided into two areas: "Key Advances in Genetics" and "Seminal Experiments in Genetics". Visitors will need to complete a free login process to get started. Once they have logged in, they can save their progress at any time and come back to complete the course at their own leisure. It's a rather neat way to learn about some of the main defining features of genetic research and by extension, current trends in scientific research more generally.
