More on Fundamentals of Biology…..

We’ve had a few discussions on the fundamentals of biology–what are the essential things to teach or for students to learn.  Over on the Daily Transcript at Science Blogs, you’ll find an interesting post that begins a discussion of the fundamental process in biology of the conversion of genotype (information) into phenotype (networks of networks of machines).  I think Alex’s perspective can really speak to biology teachers trying to help their students learn to think about biology.
