DNA sequencing is a powerful way to learn about an organism, but also generates a lot of data that needs many tools to understand genomes. Genome Hackers is a one-week, half-day summer camp for high school girls that will introduce participants to basic computer programming and bioinformatics tools to look at DNA. Students will also get to participate in hands-on laboratory experiments and perform their own sequencing experiments for analysis.
Participants will learn:- How DNA sequencing works - Current DNA technologies- Basic programming skills (great for beginners!) - Common bioinformatics tools that you can use at home- Ethics in genome sciences - How to design and present a poster
