Congratulations to the teacher participants who completed the July 2013 Genomics in your Classroom: Training for High School Teachers workshop (July 22-26, 2013)!
Topics covered in the 2013 workshop included: a genomics overview, high-throughput sequencing,transcriptomics, microarrays, bioinformatics, microbiomes, disease risk and personalized medicine, genomic information and patient rights, lab Safety, lab activities (DNA extraction, gel electrophoresis, PCR). It was a stimulating and productive week, which we hope will lead to a sampling of genomics concepts being introduced into some local classrooms during the school year.
The next Genomics in your Classroom workshop will be held summer of 2014. Information about the application process will be posted online in early 2014.
