Genes, Genomes, and Bioinformatics Tutorial  
The goal of this tutorial is to strengthen your understanding of gene structure, genome organization, and how molecular biologists use computers. You will visit several internet databases containing sequence information and answer a series of questions.

A Guide to Molecular Sequence Analysis  
This guide will introduce the reader to molecular sequence analysis. In the context of this guide, sequence analysis is the process of trying to find out something about a nucleotide or amino acid sequence, employing in silico biology techniques. You may have sequenced a gene yourself, and wish to learn what the long string of letters representing bases, actually code for. You may want to confirm that you have indeed cloned a gene successfully, or you might want to learn about a sequence of DNA that you know absolutely nothing about. You may want to know if a worm has a similar protein to a human one. These, and many other situations, require that you employ sequence analysis.

Bacterial Growth  
This program is a practical simulation and tutorial illustrating the methods that are used in measuring growth in bacteria in batch culture for use in science undergraduate courses. It was developed in March 1993 using the Asymetrix Toolbook authoring package. Particular emphasis has been placed on "user friendliness" in recognition that most students will use the program and will not have time to learn a complicated package.

A Mathematics Coursebook  
This prototype tutorial module, written using Asymetrix Toolbook, is designed to improve the basic understanding of elementary mathematical concepts applied to the graphical representation of numerical data. It is for use by first year biological science and medical undergraduates. The tutorial contains static text and graphics and is combined with many interactive features such as equations which rearrange themselves step by step or graphs of equations which redraw when their parameters are adjusted.

Plant Virus Tutorial Stack  
This is a simple HyperCard stack which allows students to revisit and build upon material presented in the lecture course. 35mm slides of infected plants, some of which are also used in the lectures have been scanned and then linked to text and navigation buttons in the HyperCard stack. The material is cross indexed by means of both 'hot words' and index cards into categories of symptoms, hosts and virus groups.

The Kidney  
This tutorial package, developed using Asymetrix Toolbook, serves as an introduction as well as revision tutorials for first year science and medical undergraduates. It introduces the students to the gross anatomy and histology of the kidney and is designed to complement ongoing lectures and practicals. The package is highly interactive with a series of MCQs and text based questions that require keyboard entry and mouse identification of structures.
