Using Technology to Study Cellular and Molecular Biology

introduces students to the concepts of scale, resolution, and probe size in cellular and molecular biology. Students play the role of a medical team that has discovered a muscle-wasting disease. They must choose which technology to use to investigate the disease (e.g., light microscopy) and must answer questions: What is the infectious agent? How does it cause disease? Is there a drug to treat or prevent it? (National Institutes of Health)

Interesting Fact:

A molecular genetic perspective affords teachers an opportunity to help integrate many of biology’s subdisciplines. This integrative process began with the advent of recombinant-DNA technology and is now being propelled by the new areas of bioinformatics and genomic biology.
