Connecting More Learners to Genomics through Teachers


At Illumina, we are on a mission to bring genomics into the classroom, and we know that educators are the way to inspire more students. In June 2018 we welcomed Biology teachers from around San Diego County to the Illumina campus for 2-day workshop designed to give them an experience they could bring into their classrooms. During the workshop, teachers completed a lab protocol, loaded the iSeq 100 Sequencing System, attended a career panel to learn more about jobs in genomics, and learned how to run students through a next-generation sequencing (NGS) experiment in the classroom.
