Influenza

Pandemic Flu Genomics Exercise

Dr. Robert Moss (Wofford College) has developed an annotation exercise on Influenza viruses.

Using BLAST and ExPASy for Genetic and Protein Analysis of H1N1 Variability

Ms. Julie Ertmann (University City High School, MO) has designed a standalone activity using BLAST for AP or second year high school biology students. This exercise uses BLAST and ExPASy for genetic and protein analysis of H1N1 variability, including mutations that confer resistance to antiviral medications. Development of this exercise was supported by an NSF Mathematics and Science Partnership grant #06344780, to B Schaal, Washington University in St. Louis.
