The Genomics Education Partnership (GEP) is a nationwide collaboration of 200+ institutions that integrates active learning into the undergraduate curriculum through Course-based Undergraduate Research Experiences (CUREs) centered in bioinformatics and genomics.
The Genomics Education Partnership is a Community of Practice dedicated to facilitating equity in undergraduate biology education. GEP provides training, resources, and mentorship to empower faculty to provide their students experiential learning and CUREs centered in genomics and bioinformatics. GEP celebrates the diverse types of institutions represented by our faculty and is committed to recruiting and mentoring faculty at institutions especially well-poised to serve students from historically underrepresented groups in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM). Equitable access to research and the associated professional development opportunities can help build a more representative biomedical and genomics community — one that is fair and just.
