The Network for Integrating Bioinformatics into Life Sciences Education (NIBLSE) seeks to promote the use of bioinformatics and data science as a way to teach biology. Just as molecular biology revolutionized the way faculty and students viewed biology in the 1980s, we believe a similar revolution with respect to bioinformatics is due. Thus far, the network has contributed two significant publications bioinformatics education literature, one detailing a set of bioinformatics core competencies for undergraduate biologists (Wilson Sayres et al., 2018, PLoS One, https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0196878), and a second documenting barriers to integrating bioinformatics into life sciences education (Williams et al., 2019, PLoS One https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0224288).
