Franklin and Marshall College expands Bioinformatics program.
Bioinformatics uses computers to analyze biological data sets. The field sits at the intersection of biology, chemistry, computer science, and mathematics. To meet the growing demand for bioinformatics experts Franklin & Marshall students receive paid fellowships to do bioinformatics research. High school teachers learn to develop hands-on units to introduce their students to bioinformatics.
To optimize the project Edu did a gap analysis, developed an evaluation plan, a data management plan, and conducted the summative evaluation.
