Become a Genome Decoders school


The Genome Decoders project is looking for new schools to join the programme. Genome Decoders offers year 12 and 13 students a fantastic opportunity to get first-hand experience of bioinformatics, working alongside scientists at the Wellcome Genome Campus to identify and annotate all the genes in the Human Whipworm genome. You don’t need specialised equipment - just a computer with internet access. Training materials and videos are also provided to get you started.


If you would like to join the Genome Decoders project please contact Steve Greenwood at the Institute for Research in Schools ([email protected])
