Bioinformatics is a rapidly-emerging discipline in which computational techniques are applied to genetic information in order to produce biological knowledge.  The essential nature of bioinformatics is well-recognized in graduate programs, research consortia and biotechnology industries.  This workshop provides a venue for educators and researchers from the life and computer sciences to explore the integration of bioinformatics into the life sciences as well as strategies for presenting bioinformatics as an interesting problem domain for computer scientists.  Also of interest are innovative ways of introducing bioinformatics as a scientific discipline and career path to pre-college students and teachers.  Specific topics include, but are not limited to
- Course content
- Curriculum structure
- Curricular goals and objectives
- Course development
- Content modules
- Pedagogical approaches
- Pedagogical issues of open/distance education
- Integration of undergraduate research
- Development/experience with majors/concentrations
- Building and sharing education resources
- Use of technology as a way to enhance teaching and learning
- Ways of introducing bioinformatics to pre-college students and teachers
- Industrial partnerships
- Articulation agreements
- Non-academic training
- Attracting under-represented groups
