Why should I join the REMNet RCN-UBE?

REMNet is an NSF-funded research coordination network for undergraduate biology education (RCN-UBE) that will build from AREM to create a nationwide community for advancing and supporting course-based microbiome research projects.

Our vision for REMNet is to create a self-sustaining network of practitioners and experts in undergraduate microbiome research who will work to establish community standards for microbiome projects, develop and adapt new resources for use with students in sample collection and data analysis, and to open routes to collaborative research projects and sharing of data and expertise.

The NSF funding allows us to help you financially to join REMNet at national and regional meetings. We can support your travel and registration to meetings and conferences where REMNet committees will discuss how to grow the network.
