Presenters : Sandra Porter, PhD, Digital World Biology, Bio-Link National Center, Austin Community College, Shoreline Community College and Todd Smith, PhD, Digital World Biology The wide application of DNA sequencing has made it possible to identify numerous missense mutations. Unfortunately, the act of translating the potential impact of these mutations to practical advice requires either an in-depth understanding of biochemistry and molecular interactions or access to a knowledgebase containing this kind of information. If we can teach students how to predict the effects of mutations, we could have students participate in annotating molecular structures and build that knowledgebase for clinicians, ... Read more

Presenter : Ellyn Daugherty, Rock Star Science Participants learn strategies to plan and implement innovative STEM biotech curriculum for all students at all levels, leading students to do science in adult environments. Participants will conduct 2 computer activities (molecular modeling and primer design) from the new edition of Biotechnology: Science for the New Millennium, 2017. Read more
Presenter : Sandra Porter, PhD, Digital World Biology LLC , and Bio-Link This will be a hands on workshop where participants will have the opportunity to use bioinformatics tools to look for and evaluate drugs to treat Zika virus. We will use BLAST, multiple alignments, and molecular modeling to identify potential drugs and determine if they might work. The example below shows Sofosbuvir bound to the RNA polymerase from Hepatitis C virus. Read more
