Since its founding in 2006, the Genomics Education Partnership’s published scholarship has advanced the understanding of genome evolution and effective pedagogical practices in STEM. Through the GEP’s research projects, more than 1,100 students (and counting) have contributed as co-authors on published scientific research papers.
