Participate in the Urban Barcode Project! Teacher Training Opportunity

Open to: High School STEM Teachers
Opportunity at a Glance: Just as a unique pattern of bars in a Universal Product Code (UPC) identifies each item for sale in a store, a DNA barcode is a DNA sequence that uniquely identifies each species of living thing. The Urban Barcode Project (UBP) trains educators to conduct research with high school students using DNA technology to explore biodiversity in New York City. This free training will introduce teachers to the DNA barcoding laboratory investigation and bioinformatics infrastructure. Teachers who complete this workshop are invited to organize student teams, propose UBP projects, and present their work at our annual symposium.
Key dates:  Monday August 22 through Friday August 26 from 9:30am – 2:00p.m.
Location: The DNA Learning Center NYC at City Tech 62 Tillary St., Brooklyn, NY, 11201
Registration deadline: Monday August 15
