The Network for Integrating Bioinformatics into Life Sciences Education (NIBLSE) is an NSF funded Research Coordination Network that aims to establish bioinformatics as an essential component of undergraduate life sciences education. As part of that effort, the project is working to make existing bioinformatics learning resources more accessible to non-specialists and increase their use across undergraduate biology courses. To this end, NIBLSE has partnered with the Quantitative Undergraduate Biology Education and Synthesis (QUBES) project and CourseSource to develop and implement a novel model for supporting the refinement, publication, and dissemination of high quality bioinformatics teaching resources.

Despite its increasing importance in nearly all areas of biology, bioinformatics has yet to be fully integrated into undergraduate life science curricula. To this end, the Network for Integrating Bioinformatics into Life Sciences Education (NIBLSE, pronounced “nibbles”) was formed and funded by the NSF to: 1) create a network of investigators committed to integrating bioinformatics into undergraduate life sciences education; 2) develop and disseminate a set of core bioinformatics competencies for undergraduate students in the biological sciences; 3) identify and disseminate assessment tools that are aligned with the core competencies; and 4) organize and vet curricular activities and professional development materials that address the competencies. This presentation will present our current progress on these objectives. Foremost, the growing NIBLSE community of biology and bioinformatics educators has recently defined a set of bioinformatics core competencies essential for all life scientists. In addition, NIBLSE, in cooperation with QUBES, has developed an online platform to develop and disseminate bioinformatics learning resources ( Finally, NIBLSE will soon begin efforts to identify assessment tools for biology instructors incorporating bioinformatics into their classrooms.

Models are an integral part of the scientific process used to represent ideas, solve problems, predict outcomes, and test theories. Modeling involves a broad set of skills and approaches, including quantitative reasoning. Students are exposed to models throughout their education, but may not understand the role of modeling in the scientific process or how to use models to increase their content knowledge. The Quantitative Undergraduate Biology Education (QUBES) project has been supporting a working group exploring how this key scientific practice be more effectively used in undergraduate biology education.
