Display Windows The Genomics Teaching Place (GTP) has three display areas in which we have created exhibits on genomics-related topics. The three display areas represent three ongoing topics in genomics; Genomics In The News, Genomics in Action and CU Genomics Faculty. The windows are replaced over time and we have archived our past displays and associated materials here.

More about the Genomics Teaching Place -
The GTP includes both a computing facility and an accompanying wet lab, allowing students hands-on experience with both the DNA manipulation and the data analysis that are involved in genomics. The lab furniture is designed for maximum flexibility to support a variety of learning environments. The specific objectives of this facility are to:
- Foster development of curricula in genomics, for undergraduates and precollege students, that facilitate learning at the interface of biology and other scientific, mathematical, and computer science disciplines.
- Increase access to knowledge about these emerging fields through the BSI undergraduate and outreach programs.
- Share educational resources centered at CU Boulder, making them available to scientists and educators across disciplines, and to the greater the science education community through the BSI outreach programs.
- Model best practices, in terms of new teaching approaches, which effectively combine laboratory, computer, and classroom experience.
- Bring fresh perspectives to established scientific disciplines by hosting activities that promote interaction among individuals from multiple disciplines, including science educators, and from different stages in their education and careers.
