Genome Consortium for Active Teaching

The purpose of GCAT: 1) bring functional genomic methods into undergraduate curriculum primarily through student research; 2) use centralized chip reader to make microarray experiments affordable; 3) create a clearing house of information for teachers to use when teaching genomics; 4) create large database of raw data and analyzed results for pedagogical use; 5) develop a global network of teachers using functional genomics in the undergraduate curriculum.
