What is a BioQUEST Partner Project?

There are a couple of ways to answer that. Our partner projects include different types of organizations and communities who are trying to get some work done. They are using the QUBES infrastructure and connecting with the BioQUEST Community by having a "group" on the QUBES Platform that they can customize and manage to make it easy for their community to communicate, share, and collaborate. 

QUBES was an NSF-funded project which worked to facilitate undergraduate biology education reform. In 2021, the BioQUEST Curriculum Consortium became the official stewards of the hub. Read more about BioQUEST and QUBES.
