College Faculty Learn Big Data from ISB

Recognizing that systems biology has fostered a paradigm shift in the practice of biology, ISB has interest in supporting educators in advancing science-related course offerings to better reflect contemporary practices of biology.

The partnership has hosted five workshops, with two more on the calendar, for more than 100 faculty members representing nearly all of the state’s 34 community and technical colleges.
