Pine Biotech is working with universities across the USA and around the world to establish accessible and modular educational programs for students and faculty at various ages. This summer, we visited several universities where we did presentations and hands-on workshops explaining the critical role data science plays in the advancement of biomedical research. One of the places we visited was a workshop organized by the Center for Plant and Life Sciences (SPLS) at the St. Louis Community College. Lee Douangkeomany, Education Outreach Specialist at the SPLS organized a hands-on demonstration for K-12 teachers, many of whom were exposed to bioinformatics for the first time. We are excited about the opportunities user-friendly bioinformatics tools bring to so many young and talented students when our program is launched.
Elia Brodsky, CEO of Pine Biotech said: ” Since data skills are a key factor in research success and career readiness, we envision bioinformatics becoming an essential part of biology currriculum starting as early as possible“
