Resources for the Jalview School's Workbook

'Visualising DNA, RNA & Proteins' Jalview School Workbook is aimed at 16-18 year old secondary school students studying Higher or A level biology. The easy-to-use design requires only a desktop or laptop computer with a web browser and internet access. The workbook is made up of 3 projects with their own self-contained exercises.
Project 1 views DNA, RNA and protein sequences and their sub-units, then views the 3D structure of these molecules.
Project 2 views the sequence and 3D structure of human myoglobin protein, compares it with sequences from other species, then views its coding DNA.
Project 3 views exons and introns in the HBB gene, then views the coding DNA and its protein product in a split-screen viewer identifying the genetic mutation responsible for sickle cell anaemia.
