Education & Outreach
Center researchers have developed Independent Studies in Computational Biology (ISCB) to expose high school students to the methods, culture and experience of performing interdisciplinary research.
This new educational resource includes lectures, short tutorials, problems sets and accompanying notes, slides, R code and data, all integrated within common themes in systems biology.
High school and college students conduct independent research under the guidance of Center scientists. More than 2,000 students, including three Nobel laureates, have participated in this program offered by The Jackson Laboratory since 1924.
The one-week Short Course on Systems Genetics covers computational and experimental approaches to genetic studies that utilize whole genome approaches.
The Center aims to promote the long-term growth of the field of systems biology through the education, recruitment and mentoring of young investigators.
The Center and its collaborators are developing educational software to teach the next generation of systems biologists. Software has been designed for middle and high school students and their teachers.
