Description
Teachers will use BLAST to find regions of local similarity between protein sequences. By using the protein sequence databases, teachers will find structural and evolutionary information about various proteins. In addition, interpretation of the data they gather will be discussed. We will conclude the session by discussing how this activity can be implemented in a classroom setting and be used in different grade levels..
