Bio21: Teaching Biology with Bioinformatics
Host:
Location:
Raleigh, NC
Date(s):
October 17, 2003 - October 18, 2003
Abstract/Description:
As the need to work with large quantities of data grows, it is imperative that biologists become better data analysts, learn to define new experimental requirements, and become more critical consumers of software and bioinformatics tools. We propose to bridge the technology gap by encouraging biology faculty to incorporate bioinformatics experiments in all biology courses and to begin a dialog about what bioinformatics really is and how it should be included in, and change, the undergraduate biology curriculum. Our goals for this conference are two-fold. We seek to build a knowledgeable team of educators who are interested in using bioinformatics activities in the classroom and serving as resource people for instructors in their area. Second, we will initiate critical discussions about the types of courses and curriculum that best prepare students for working in the multidisciplinary groups that will comprise much of twenty-first century biology.
