Over-reaching Learning Objective
The over-reaching learning objective is to help students understand:
- Where does our knowledge come from?
- How did the authors of textbooks or review papers know that certain gene products (proteins or RNAs) did the specific things they describe?
- What techniques did scientists use to characterize them?
CACAO Course Learning Objectives
- To critically analyze scientific papers and identify evidence for functional annotations.
- seek information from online resources and add annotations to GONUTS.
- formulate annotations using GO terminology while working effectively in a group.
- evaluate peer-contributed annotations, construct challenges and prepare appropriate defenses.
