Genomics and other areas of biology rely heavily on the tools of bioinformatics, data science, and computing. Bringing these tools into the classroom can be daunting – both in determining which tools to use and managing their use. The Genomics Education Alliance (GEA) is a newly NSF-funded research collaboration network (RCN-UBE #1827130). This alliance has brought together several well-known educators and educational projects. Resources in development by GEA include a core set of computational tools and we will demonstrate how we have used CyVerse resources to make classroom that make using bioinformatics in the classroom a more manageable experience.
