Computational Biology for Biology Educators
Topical — 2013
Computation has become essential to the practice of contemporary biology. Story telling and concept maps, with the right tools, can quickly turn ideas in biology into dynamic, visual models. The storage, access, analysis and visualization of growing amounts of data, and the functional interpretation of complex biological phenomena require the use of a range of computational approaches and tools. This series of workshops aims to provide an introductory overview of computational resources and methods that can be used with students interested in biology or the biological applications of math at the secondary or introductory college level.
