Integrating Bioinformatics into the Life Sciences – Phase 2

  • NSF TUES Phase 2 Award (#1122971; 2011 - 2015)
  • Goals:
    • Permanently modify the biology curriculum at three diverse institutions;
    • Develop a repository of curated “student-friendly” data and computational tools;
    • Vertically integrate the bioinformatics-focused laboratories through several levels of complexity; and
    • Disseminate the bioinformatics-focused laboratories through publisher’s resources.
  • Participating Institutions:
    • University of Nebraska at Omaha: Large (> 15,000), public, metropolitan, Doctoral/Research (Carnegie classification)
    • University of Nebraska at Kearney: Mid-sized (5,000 – 15,000), public, rural, Master’s Large
    • Nebraska Wesleyan University (Lincoln, NE): Small (< 5,000), private, Baccalaureate/A&S
slide3

Bioinformatics-focused Laboratories

  • Have a narrative that presents the problem and introduces the topic;
  • Structured exercises that sequentially address questions posed by the laboratory.
  • Make use of publicly available bioinformatics tools as well as curated data sets.
  • Additional labs under development:
  • Dotplots, Paralogs and Orthologs
  • Exploring Ancient Genomes
  • Phylogenetic Analysis of Microorganisms
  • Tetrapod Evolution

*To be presented on 18 June at ABLE 2014.

Assessment

  • Expert review
  • Student focus groups
  • Pre/posttest developed by the project team and validated by experts on the evaluation team.

UNO Undergraduate Bioinformatics (BIOI) Major

  • Established 2004; first graduate in 2005
  • Offered simultaneously by the College of Arts and Sciences (A&S) and the College of Information Science & Technology (IS&T)
  • 55 current majors. Graduates: 50% med. school/40% grad. school/10% work
  • Curriculum (other requirements depend on college)
