The Genomics Explorer helps students:

  1. become inspired about biology
  2. develop a literature-based understanding of important quantitative approaches,
  3. define interesting questions that can be addressed with data,
  4. make connections between genes and their biological functions,
  5. analyze and critically evaluate bioinformatic data,
  6. connect bioinformatic analyses with wet lab and field experiments,
  7. develop and test a viable hypothesis by bringing together the literature, classroom knowledge, and analysis of data.
