Proteopedia as a learning environment: Integrating proteopedia into teachers’ professional development and high-school biochemistry
Dr. Yael Shwartz
Prof. Joel Sussman )structural biology)
Prof. Jaime Prielusky (Bio-informatics)
Dr. Yael Shwartz, in collaboration with Prof. Sussman and Prof. Priluskey, suggest integrating the use of Proteopedia into high-school science. Proteoepdia is an international wiki-based, collaborative, 3D encyclopedia of protein, and other biomolecule structures (http://www.proteopedia.org). For achieving this, we integrate Proteopedia in chemistry teachers’ professional development programs, and support the development of new teacher competencies.
