Short Course in Genomics

The NHGRI Short Course in Genomics offers science educators the opportunity to hear lectures and receive teaching resources from leading researchers, clinicians and staff. Topics include complex diseases, sequencing technologies, brain and behavior, bioinformatics, gene editing, the human microbiome and ethical issues in genomics research.

The Education and Community Involvement (ECIB) Branch within NHGRI is offering its annual NHGRI Short Course in Genomics from August 2-6, 2021

Overview

What is the NHGRI Short Course in Genomics?

The course is for middle and high school teachers, community college and Tribal College faculty teaching science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) courses. 

The 2021 Short Course in Genomics course will be virtual. 

A note on the virtual format: Last summer’s Short Course in Genomics was virtual for the first time. The course was successfully delivered virtually, and we built an engaged virtual educator community through pre-taped lectures, live lectures and Q&As with scientists and hands-on virtual activities. The course will be delivered via Zoom. Digital materials and mailed activity kits will be provided in advance.
