Bio Lab Provides Lessons for Students, Research for National Study

March 2, 2010

Research conducted as part of three intro biology labs last semester will become part of a national study. The research, conducted in sections of the course “Molecules, Genes and Cells,” will be contributed to the Genomics Education Partnership (GEP), a collaboration among more than 60 colleges and universities across the country and spearheaded by the Washington University in St. Louis’ biology department and Genome Sequencing Center. Other institutions involved in the GEP include California Polytechnic State University-San Luis Obiospo, Rochester Institute of Technology, Georgetown and Duke Universities and Macalester and Pomona Colleges, to name a few.
