July 14, 2016

Dr. Stokes Baker and Dr. James GravesBiology professors, attend the Genome Consortium for Active Teaching (GCAT) workshop in Los Angeles, California earlier this month.

GCAT-SEEKParticipants develop teaching modules to use Next-Gen sequencing datasets for a variety of different types of undergraduate courses.

Descriptions of the modules undergo a peer review by other participants.

“Dr. Graves and I are learning how to use metagenomics to survey microbial populations,” says Baker.  “This fall, I will be integrating this material into my Ecology Laboratory course.  Next spring, Dr. Graves plans to incorporate materials into his Microbiology Laboratory Course.”

The application process for the workshop is a competitive process.

UDM provides students many opportunities for engaging in authentic research in their undergraduate courses.
