The field of genomics contributes to many areas of our lives by providing tools to unlock the secrets of DNA.

EMBL’s Science Education and Public Engagement team, in collaboration with the EMBL-EBI Public Engagement Office and in partnership with Merck, invites secondary school science teachers to explore this exciting area of biology in a virtual training course this spring.

The course, entitled “Navigating the Genomic Landscape: A Journey with Genome Sequencing,” will provide an overview of the evolution of the field of genomics, insights into the latest advances in genome sequencing, and inspiration for teaching genomics in the classroom. It aims to foster conversation and collaboration on genomics between EMBL researchers and educators from around the world. Participants will explore theory and practice, focusing on applications of genome sequencing and pedagogical resources for teaching genomics in the classroom.
