P960: Use of an on-line protein tutorial to aid student understanding of protein structure

Colleen Conway (Mount Mary College, USA)

Students often have a hard time visualizing molecules in three dimensions.  This student/faculty developed on-line tutorial was designed to aid students to understand how proteins really appear in three dimensions.  Students often have difficulty understanding the levels of structure of proteins, especially tertiary and quaternary structures, particularly in terms of the types of interactions that are occurring.  This tutorial guides them through a variety of proteins to show them the structures and how the various interactions are occurring in three dimensions.
