Bioinformatics Resources for High Schools
Bioinformatics is an integral part of biology and, thus, is being introduced to high school students as part of biology coursework. In 2012, the College Board revised a number of labs including the evolution labs of the Biology AP exam preparation. Included is a lab "Comparing DNA Sequences to Understand Evolutionary Relationships with BLAST." Tools, such as BLAST, and other bioinformatics tools, help us interpret the patterns in biological data and are important to help students learn biological principles.
