NY/NJ Regional Node Meeting

June 3 | Hybrid

In the morning, Dr. Shubha Govind has generously volunteered to give a hands-on introductory workshop on working with parasitoid wasps including husbandry protocol to maintain on Drosophila stocks, identifying adult males and females, dissecting Drosophila larvae and identifying wasp eggs and larvae. In the afternoon, faculty and students will present on their implementations and annotations from the 2021/2022 academic year.

July 2022 New Member Training Cohort 1

July 6–9 | Washington University in St. Louis

New Member Training will help faculty integrate GEP curriculum materials into existing courses and engage their students in scientific research through Course-based Undergraduate Research Experiences (CUREs) centered in genomics. Those who complete the training become members of our Partnership and thus are expected to implement GEP materials in one of their classes.

WHO: Especially welcome faculty from Community Colleges, MSIs, & PUIs teaching courses in genetics, genomics, bioinformatics, molecular biology, evolution, or introductory biology
WHERE: Washington University in St. Louis; All costs including travel & lodging will be covered by our NIH grant.

Please note that we strongly encourage trainees to complete the Understanding Eukaryotic Genes modules prior to attending the training. These modules will allow trainees to start to learn the tools GEP uses for gene annotation. An overview and timeline for implementing these modules is available on CourseSource.

Genomics Education Partnership July 2022 New Member Training We invite faculty across the U.S. that are interested in implementing a Course-based Undergraduate Research Experience (CURE) to join us either in-person or virtually for a New Member Training in July 2022! The schedule will alternate between hands-on implementation sessions, presentations, and discussions, including information about GEP Research Projects and how current members use GEP materials in their classes. Specially welcomed to apply: faculty from Community Colleges, MSIs, & PUIs teaching courses in genetics, genomics, bioinformatics, molecular biology, evolution, or introductory biology GEP has two upcoming options available for New Member Training Cohort 1 will meet in-person at Washington University in St. Louis during the evening of July 6 through midday on July 9.
