Genomic Approaches in BioSciences - Gwinnett Technical College
Event Date(s): Monday, June 20, 2011 - 07:00am UTC to Friday, June 24, 2011 - 07:00am UTC
Collaborating with 12 community colleges and Bio-Link, the DNA Learning Center (DNALC) is offering week-long Genomic Approaches in BioSciences workshops.
Workshop participants will explore cutting-edge science tools, hands-on laboratories,
bioinformatic investigations, and careers. Participants will update their pedagogy while
networking with biotech leaders and colleagues. Faculty from secondary education, 2-
year colleges, and universities are invited to apply. The National Science Foundation,
Division of Undergraduate Education's Advanced Technological Education (NSF-ATE)
program is funding all instruction, workshop materials, meals/refreshments, and a
stipend of $300. Further support for travel or other related expenses is not available.
The Genomic Approaches in BioSciences workshops will focus on four key
technologies - PCR, DNA Sequencing, RNA interference, and Bioinformatics - that will
prepare students for specialized life science elective courses, independent research
projects, and biotechnology careers.
Genomic Approaches in BioSciences will integrate theoretical, laboratory, and
computer technology with practical advice on classroom management and career
exploration. Time will be included for independent work, lesson planning, and
preparation for classroom projects. Each workshop is led by DNALC staff members and
college faculty who collaborated in the development of the course modules.
