The MDI Biological Laboratory is pleased to present Bioinformatics T3: Train the Trainer, a project that supports training in bioinformatics skills for college and university undergraduate science instructors so that they can effectively integrate bioinformatics into their science curricula, and help their students prepare for the 21st-century workplace.
The Bioinformatics T3: Train the Trainer Project has three components:
- A short course for undergraduate instructors with hands-on activities,
including both wet-bench laboratory and bioinformatics experiences.
- A dedicated web portal with links to instructional resources, online step-by-step video tutorials, case studies, and a forum for building a Community of Bioinformatics Trainers.
- Support for delivering the curriculum that includes access to a dedicated
server with bioinformatics software.
