Wesleyan University's Integrative Genomic Sciences (IGS) program is designed to help students learn how genomics utilizes bioinformatics. The IGS website contains several teaching modules for two such courses, and educators are encouraged to use these modules as curricular supplements or as a framework for developing their own examples in a computer lab setting. Two of the modules use Drosophila genes to explore genetic maps, the power of relational databases, and the strengths and weaknesses of some biological database searching tools. Moving along, the site also contains teaching demonstrations of two algorithms used to cluster data. Interested parties will note that these demonstrations can be easily incorporated into a classroom lecture. The site is rounded out by a set of relational databases and tools.
