BEDROCK (Bioinformatics Education
Dissemination: Reaching Out, Connecting, and Knitting-together) is an NSF-funded project aimed at integrating bioinformatics throughout the undergraduate biology curriculum, using an inquiry-based approach in which students explore and analyze actual data in a way that recreates the experience of conducting research.

Bioinformatics is the rapidly growing science of analyzing electronically stored and distributed biological data using computer-based tools. The accumulation of vast, complex genomic data sets enables us to formulate Aand test evolutionary hypotheses in a variety of fields such as conservation, medicine, agriculture, and forensics.
