Instead of using a textbook, is there an alternative curriculum, that simply lists a set of pubmed research articles for each topic covered in a typical undergrad molecular biology course?
I am currently learning molecular biology by reading a textbook. Different chapters focus on different topics such as Cells and Genomes, Cell Chemistry, Proteins, DNA, Gene Expression, etc... However, I'd prefer to learn these topics directly from research papers on pubmed.
For example, I would imagine the DNA "chapter" of such a curriculum would include the Watson Crick paper on DNA.
As another example, searching for "Protein" in pubmed reveals a ton of research papers, but which subset of them cover the topics taught in an intro molecular biology course?
Note: The pubmed articles don't have to be free or open access, I'm ok with getting the papers through my university library. Also if an alternative curriculum such as this doesn't exist, maybe there is a supplemental one? Or maybe you can recommend a set of papers that you'd include in such a curriculum?
