Cyber Tools for Undergraduate Education

  • GCAT: Network of faculty collaborating to bring cyber tools into undergraduate classrooms

  • Students from across the U.S. sharing data

  • Shared resources to make microarray experiments affordable

  • Clearing house of information for students and teachers

  • Database of results for teaching and research

www.bio.davidson.edu/GCAT


How Does GCAT Work?

  • Collects requests for DNA chips; currently 7 species available

  • Obtains microarrays from academic suppliers

  • Distributes chips to faculty teaching undergraduates

  • Undergraduates conduct experiments

  • Chips are sent to GCAT to scan (NSF-funded scanners)

  • FTP data to students for analysis (< 24 hours)

  • Students and faculty share data


GCAT Resources

  • Protocols and FAQs

  • Data sets

  • Free Software

  • Listserv

  • Workshops

  • 7 Species and growing

  • Experienced faculty for technical support

  • Community of faculty for moral support
