  1. At the beginning of class I was uncomfortable using the databases, but by the end of the class I would say I was very comfortable using the various Workbench tools. I am not as comfortable with using GenBank, however my comfort level can improve by using the database more frequently.
  2. The easiest way for me to understand this article was to read the abstract and discussion first. This method worked for me because the methods and results sections can often become confusing with all of the information they are presenting you. Knowing the beginning and the end helped me make sense of what was supposed to be going on in the middle.
  3. The most difficult aspect of understanding this article was trying to interpret the data produced. I couldn't figure out where the data in the Results came from and how it was calculated.
