Bio21: Teaching Biology with Bioinformatics
October 17, 2003 - October 18, 2003
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
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
