Description:

This classroom activity is designed to introduce the theory of microarrays by simulating analysis of gene expression in budding yeast cells during the diauxic shift. It provides students with the opportunity to construct ideas about how different genes are used at different times within organisms and how researchers today are using microarray technology to identify those genes and measure their expression levels. The objectives of this classroom activity are to: 1) Understand the basic principles of microarrays 2) Understand how researchers use microarrays to analyze gene expression 3) Express data in graph form
