Description:

A team of researchers at Davidson College created this fascinating online tutorial, and they refer to it as a "textbook for a technology society". There are four interrelated modules here which use 3D animation and interactive learning tools to help students understand functional genomics and its applications. Each module has a number of smaller sections that contain basic summaries of each concept. Visitors can use the virtual "lab bench" to learn about the measurement of the expression of an entire genome as part of their learning experience. The site also includes a glossary, a page bookmark, and a scientific calculator. Additionally, there are complete transcripts of each narrated section on the site, along with a rather fun puzzle.
