In this unique modular lab series, students were guided through an innovative research workflow identical to those performed in genomics labs worldwide. Participants learned about this multiple-week lab course, where students combine traditional and cutting edge molecular biology techniques and bioinformatics to clone, sequence, and analyze a housekeeping gene from a plant of your choice ensuring each class produces unique and novel data. Participants worked through several modules hands-on to learn advanced techniques and informatics analysis.
