Genomics in Education

Created by Professor Sarah C.R. Elgin at Washington University, the Genome Sequencing Video Tour is "aimed at increasing the scientific literacy of biology students in the technology of genomic sequence." Here, visitors can watch the entire tour, which include segments featuring an exploration of current genomic research in a pathogenic bacteria and an animated explanation of the chemistry of cycle sequencing. The site also includes several key resources that have been developed in collaboration with Washington University biology students. Visitors will find four different bioinformatics lab demonstrations here including "Investigating Eukaryotic Genome: Cloning and Sequencing a Fragment of Yeast DNA". Also, science teachers shouldn't miss the research-based course "Research Explorations in Genomics" available here, and they should also be sure to check out the information about their Summer Research Fellows program, which gives high school teachers the opportunity to learn about new research projects in a faculty member's lab.
