I'm forwarding this from the JAX-GE Team:


We are writing on behalf of the education team at The Jackson Laboratory (www.jax.org/education-and-learning), where we are embarking on a project to develop new curricular resources in the areas of genetics and genomics for undergraduates. We are seeking your feedback via a brief survey to learn more about your students and curriculum and to determine if the potential exists for us to create discrete genetics and genomics content modules in support of undergraduates and their teaching faculty.

About the Jackson Laboratory

Founded in 1929, The Jackson Laboratory (“JAX”) pioneered the use of  mice as models for  human disease and has since earned a reputation for excellence with respect to providing mouse models and services to researchers worldwide.  As a nonprofit biomedical research institution, JAX also has 65 faculty with independent research programs that integrate deep experience in mammalian genetics with ground-breaking advances in human genomics and bioinformatics to decipher the biological and genomic causes of human disease and drive medical progress.

Why are we reaching out?

The Jackson Laboratory’s Genomic Education team (JAX GE) provides access to engaging educational opportunities for diverse learners spanning the continuum from high school students to research scientists and clinical professionals. We are actively exploring the potential for creating free course content and corresponding faculty support materials that can be adopted and used by undergraduate students and faculty within existing courses and curricula, with the hope of significantly broadening our reach and impact with respect to the undergraduate learner population.

Our primary goal for this survey is to learn more about any of your emerging, underserved or unmet undergraduate course content needs that intersect with JAX’s science and content expertise in the realm of genetics, genomics, and bioinformatics.

This anonymous survey should take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete and all respondents who wish to participate will have the opportunity to enter a drawing for a $100 Amazon gift card.
