A men for Science Education after receiveng his Nobel Prize

Carl Wieman, is a Nobel Laureate in Physics. He gave in the last years a series of lectures about the scientific assesment of teaching science.

On of these lectures about how to teach science given at Harvard can be seen here.

The conclusions are refreshing: there is a way of teaching science outside the laboratories too.

One of the tools he is suggesting is modelling of real experiments. He developedd and made freely available a set of basic experiments.

You can have a look to these and use them at the website of the Colorado University here.

In his lectures he is refering to a book abour expertieze end experts, The Cambridge Handbook of Expertise and Expert Performance. Seems to be a relevant book int this topic:

On this tutorial you can see an easy way to design oligos for gene synthesis, or in other words Gene design.

The description is based on the Instructional Videos from the iGEM website!

Gene design in less than 10 minutes!

Good luck!!!




Some usefull tools:

1. Gene design web page
2. Tools at DNA20
3. Tools at DNA Works
4. A Revese-Complement Tool
5. Gene designer a comprehensive tool to artificial gene design from DNA20 described here.


If you would like to read about the application of design principles in Drug Discovery you should read this book:
