# QBCC Modules sorted by Quantitative Biology Skills Concepts

These quantitative skill concepts arose from a NIMBioS working group that worked to identify the core quantitative biology skills that community college students need based on surveying community college faculty.

### List of Quantitative Categories

Some QBCC modules fit into multiple categories. There are currently 4 unique QBCC modules listed multiple times in the following categories.
