The Genomics Education Partnership (GEP) will host a training workshop on May 29 – June 1, 2019 for faculty members who are looking to incorporate genomics into the curriculum, and to engage undergraduate students in genomics research during the academic year. Please submit your contact information through the GEP Contact Form so that we can contact you when the registration opens later in spring 2019.
The Genomics Education Alliance (GEA) will host a meeting on June 5–8, 2019 at Washington University in St. Louis to help identify and curate resources to ensure the sustainability of undergraduate education in bioinformatics and genomics. This meeting will provide an opportunity to examine and provide feedback on the initial resources and curriculum that we are working to assemble (including BLAST, Genome Visualization and Annotation, and RNA-Seq curricula). We need your input to understand how the GEA can make it easier for educators to deliver high-impact experiences to their students. At the meeting we will demonstrate the resources we have developed, which we hope you might adapt for your needs and provide us with future feedback. If you are interested in attending this meeting or joining the GEA, please contact Dr. Douglas Chalker for more information.
The UCLA QCB Collaboratory offers multiple hands-on bioinformatics workshops every quarter except for the summer. These workshops usually run for 2-3 hours per day for 2-3 days, and they cover topics such as introduction to UNIX, RNA-Seq analysis, ChIP-Seq analysis, R and Python programming. The schedules for the spring 2019 workshops are available on the Schedule of Workshops page on the QCB web site. Please contact Matteo Pellegrini for additional information.
