Vote for Leve DNA!
05 Oct 2011
In short: the Leve DNA-plan wants to execute fun DNA-research that 'the public' can come up with. Together with high schools we will choose and elaborate twelve of such researches. We can, for example, compare the genome of the main Opera visitor with the genome of the main Lowlands-visitor. Or we can determine if chewing gum on the street near a hospital contains more pathogenic bacteria then the chewing gum near a high school.
Hienke Sminia (NBIC) is part of the enthusiastic team (LUMC, LGTC, Naturalis and NBIC) and will help the team with the connection to high school education. But NBIC will of course also contribute in the bioinformatics support of these small scale researches.
Part of the Academische jaarprijs is de public prize. This means that YOU can help us win! Vote for us via: http://www.wetenschap24.nl/programmas/labyrint/publieksprijs.html
