DNA Overview Learning Module
This category includes the DNA Overview Learning Module (Instructor guide, Participant guide and PowerPoint presentation). The learning module provides an overview of DNA (Deoxyribonucleic acid), its role as genetic material, its molecular components and structure, and DNA replication. This information is necessary to better understand the role of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) in DNA analysis, disease diagnostics, and gene therapy. There are three activities that allow the participants to further explore DNA using several on-line tutorials. An assessment is provided in the Instructor Guide.
DNA Overview Learning Module - Participant (Student) Guide
This learning module provides an overview of DNA, its role as genetic material, its molecular components and structure, and DNA replication.
You will explore a variety of DNA concepts (code, manipulation, genome, applications), as well as DNA's role in applications such as infectious and inherited diseases. You will also explore DNA's significance as the genetic material, and the techniques used to analyze DNA.
