Bringing bioinformatics to the classroom

Even though bioinformatics touches upon many aspects of everyday life – health, nutrition, environmental care, forensics – and is a major element of modern research in the life sciences, to most high school pupils the topic is completely unknown. But as these youngsters are potentially tomorrow's scientists, NBIC and the Centre for Molecular and Biomolecular Informatics (CMBI) are actively bringing bioinformatics to the classroom via the Bioinformatics@school-project.
