This year's weeklong workshop, "The Power of Bioinformatics in Modern Biology," took place last week. Participants explored connections between basic biological concepts such as DNA, genetics, natural variation, health, and disease through the use of computational technology and basic programming. Each of the participating high school science teachers was paired with a TUteach student to help them learn the basics of Python coding. The week culminated in the creation of a Bioinformatics coding lesson by each participating teacher to be used in their classroom, and each of them walked away with a laptop equipped with the software that they learned how to use. The workshop was funded in part by the National Science Foundation.
