Using Bioinformatics Data and Tools to Engage Students in Problem
Solving: A Curriculum Development Workshop, Jan. 7-10, 2013
<http://www.nimbios.org/education/WS_curriculum_dev2013>*

*Are you interested in incorporating research data and tools into your
undergraduate biology course? Join us for a workshop that focuses on
strategies for bringing bioinformatics resources, data visualization
tools and an interdisciplinary approach to teaching and learning
biology. The program, co-presented by BioQUEST Curriculum Consortium and
the European Bioinformatics Institute, features hands-on experience
working with publicly accessible research data to solve biological
problems and research talks. Topics include strategies for teaching with
big datasets, using proteomics and functional genomics resources,
visually exploring data and accessing online databases. You will also
work collaboratively to create a curriculum project for use in your
classroom.

Co-hosts: NIMBioS and UT's SCALE-IT (Scalable Computing and Leading Edge
Innovative Technologies)

Location: NIMBioS at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Participation in the workshop is open, but numbers are limited, so
individuals with a strong interest in the topic are encouraged to apply.
If needed, financial support for travel, meals, and lodging is available
for workshop attendees.*

The National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis
(NIMBioS) (http://www.nimbios.org) brings together researchers from
around the world to collaborate across disciplinary boundaries to
investigate solutions to basic and applied problems in the life
sciences. NIMBioS is sponsored by the National Science Foundation, the
U.S. Department of Homeland Security, and the U.S. Department of
Agriculture with additional support from The University of Tennessee,
Knoxville.*
