Computational Biology for Biology Educators
Topical — 2014
Computation has become essential to the practice of contemporary biology. Story telling and concept maps, with the right tools, can quickly turn ideas in biology into dynamic, visual models. The storage, access, analysis and visualization of growing amounts of data, and the functional interpretation of complex biological phenomena require the use of a range of computational approaches and tools. This series of workshops aims to provide an introductory overview of computational resources and methods that can be used with students interested in biology or the biological applications of math at the secondary or introductory college level.

The formal workshop schedule will start on Monday morning and proceed through Wednesday afternoon. Participants will develop lesson plans and materials for use in their own classrooms. This workshop will benefit teachers of biology in college or high school; math and computer science faculty and teachers who want to use modeling in biology as an application area will also benefit. Thursday is optional as a project work day or getting individual help from instructors.
