This joint conference brings together three groups interested in undergraduate quantitative biology education. All three groups meet together. The HHMI Quantitative Biology Conference will conclude on Monday June 15, and the BioQUEST and Science Case Net participants will continue meeting together through Sat June 20.  All are welcome to apply to the HHMI and BioQUEST conferences. Science Case Net is by invitation only. We recommend all participants bring a laptop.
