Instructor Support

Are you teaching a course and want to include bioinformatics? There are a number of ways the bioinformationist can help. Exploring the human genome? There's a database for that. Actually, there are several databases - the bioinformationist can help navigate the options and even provide in-class demonstrations and orientation. Want to introduce your students to writing computer code? The bioinformationist can provide an introductory session with the popular R statistics program to improve your students' computational literacy. The bioinformationist can even help develop online resources, such as a Guide on the Side, to complement your course material. To find out more about instructional support in bioinformatics, contact me.
