Want to incorporate exciting new genomics content into your fall courses? Check out the brand new microbiome lesson plans developed by four educators/alumni from the National Human Genome Research Institute’s (NHGRI) annual summer Short Course in Genomics for middle school, high school, community college, and Tribal College educators. The NHGRI Short Course in Genomics Microbiome Lesson Plans were inspired by lectures and resources on the microbiome offered at various Short Courses in Genomics over the past five years.
The microbiome lesson plans consist of four modules:
