Project: CBSG 2012 DNA Labs

In spring 2009 we will exceeded a total number of 50.000 high school students that have been reached with the mobile DNA courses since 2005.

Several years ago, in Wageningen, the concept of the mobile DNA lab was born and the WU and CBSG collaborated to make this idea (where University students visit high schools with advanced equipment to perform a genomics experiment in the class) a great success. Three years ago this concept was developed into a truely nation - wide activity where schools can choose between 5 different mobile labs on diverse topics such as cancer, bioinformatics and protein modelling.

This project is part of a collaboration between the Centre of Society and Genomics (CSG) and the Centre for BioSystems Genomics (CGSG), both of which are financed by the Netherlands Genomics Initiative/Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research.
