Bioinformatics Inquiry through Sequencing | Tufts University

Educational Outreach for Genetics, Bioinformatics, and Sequencing

BioSeq aims to provide students with a genuine research experience using next generation sequencing (NGS). Aspects of our program include:

  • establishing an educational sequencing facility at the Tufts Medford campus
  • creating a research-based bioinformatics course for high school students through Tufts Summer Study
  • developing classroom modules that bring current applications of NGS technology to high schools
  • continuing the long-time focus of Professor David Walt's lab on science education outreach


This project is supported by the National Institutes of Health Science Education Partnership Award.
