New Moodle System is online!
For those of you interested in Bioinformatics, Moodle system provides you a great enviroment for online bioinformatic related courses. It creates effective online learning communities, which give all researches, teachers and students a great opportunity to share their work and ideas with others.
Proceed to Moodle System
Interactive lessons are developed!
The aim of these interactive lessons is to let students
1. Have a clear exposition of a biological topic.
2. Have ready access to background and advanced materials
3. Enhance the learning of the material with exercises in which the student accesses bioinformatics research tools to illustrate the principles of the lesson and to provide a basis for independent student exploration.
We further developed Chemistry Connection Section to get you familiar with the connection between Biology and Chemistry.

Workshop on Computing in Nano and Bio Sciences Research and Education June 29 - July 5 CeNAT in San Jose, Costa Rica Registration materials are at here

Several of the Molecular Science Student Workbench staff are instructors in this workshop, which will feature hands-on tutorials in the following areas: Computational biology, including high-throughput bioinformatics. Computational chemistry, including electronic structure calculations. Cell modeling using Matlab Computational nanotechnology, featuring tools from Nanohub. Building a cluster.

Participants will have a chance to be mentored as individuals or in small groups in the use of tools of their choice, either for research or education. Material will be presented in a newly developed computational science environment, the NCSA Science Student Workbench, that links lesson narratives, external information sources, and computational tools. Participants will be able to create curricular material within the Science Student Workbench, beginning during the workshop and persisting afterwards.

Costa Rica is an extremely interesting country in that it is charting its development path with biotechnology, nanotechnology, environmental preservation, and higher education as key elements. This workshop will be an excellent intercultural experience, with sessions will conducted in both Spanish and English, via simultaneous translation.
