The University of Arizona announces a new professional development opportunity for high school teachers in Arizona that are interested in learning the technologies involved in DNA barcoding.
Have you heard about DNA Barcoding? It is a method to classify and identify organisms by their DNA and provides great opportunities for your students to conduct primary research.
The BIO5 Institute at the University of Arizona is working with AZDOE Career and Technical Education to update and expand the teaching of biology. We will offer a 1-day professional development workshop on DNA Barcoding on Feb 11th . The workshop connects theory/background with a wet lab and with bioinformatics analyses, and it's going to be a lot of fun. This workshop is open to any science/biology/STEM educator interested in learning the technologies involved in DNA Barcoding, how to get support in implementing it in the classroom.
