Welcome to Bioinformatics Materials for Highschool AP Bio

We are University of California Santa Cruz graduate students in Biomolecular Engineering and Bioinformatics department. Under the leadership of Kevin Karplus (karplus@soe.ucsc.edu) we created a set of activities, including student worksheets, teacher's guides, and other applicable materials, which help high school teachers teach biology topics to their students using bioinformatics tools and methods. These activities have already been presented in high school settings as a part of the AP Bio curriculum. We hope that these materials will be useful to you and your students as well. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or requests.

The following teaching units are currently available:
The following units are coming soon (probably Fall 2012, after we have a chance to try them with high school students):

Based on the survey we conducted, students would also like to see the following topics covered by our teaching units. Some of these topics would not benefit from bioinformatics, as bioinformatics does not have much to do with them. However, we are planning to take some of the suggestions and follow up with additional teaching units. These are some of the student suggestions for the future units:
