In this lab, students will:

  • Be able to conduct searches on publicly available databases and interpret results (Pubchem and SwissADME).
  • Be able to compare and contrast chemical ADME properties in small groups to determine which chemical is more likely to have a biological effect in the consumer.
  • Formulate hypotheses to determine outcomes of chemical interactions within the body.
  • Conduct literature searches to support their formulated hypothesis.

This module has been used in BSU’s Molecular Ecology (BIOL 409) course.
