This project's goals are to investigate structural components at a variety of levels: molecularly, cellularlly (histologically),phylogenetically, organismally, etc. Traditionally the stuctural classes at many institutions have used primarily dissection and histology for comparison of different vertebrate classes. In this project, we began to develop exercises at the molecular level using gemonmic and proteomic information to form phylogenetic trees, started a chart of materials available at NCBI for use in comparison (phylogentically and visually) of characteristic proteins from specific organ systems, and initiated thinking about a project to start a pictorial archive of dissection activities and histological meassurements. With the signifcant movement to integrate more material within biology and other areas of science and mathematics, building bridges (exercises) amongst a number of levels seems relevant. In addition, adding more open-ended projects with greater manipulation of data and mathematical manipulation in these courses is very desirable.
