Quantitative Undergraduate Biology Education and Synthesis (QUBES) Project
Sam Donovan, University of Pittsburgh
The Quantitative Undergraduate Biology Education and Synthesis (QUBES) Project is an NSF funded effort to promote the use of quantitative approaches across the biology curriculum. The project organizes Faculty Mentoring Networks - a learning community approach - to support faculty as they adopt and adapt high quality teaching materials and develop their own quantitative skills. The project activities are coordinated through the QUBES Hub http://qubeshub.org, a web based resource for education, research and collaboration in quantitative biology. The QUBES Hub hosts various resources which will help you learn and teach in the field of quantitative biology, including Teaching Materials, Models, Data, and more. These resources come from contributors in our community, and are used by visitors from all over the world. QUBES also offers Software, some of which can be executed directly within your web browser, thus allowing you to use simulations and data analysis as part of your teaching and learning in quantitative biology without having to go through the lengthy install process. You can learn more at http://qubeshub.org.
