Common Thread


We want to provide our students with materials
that will encourage active learning


It seems reasonable to look for material that has
local “flavor”, as this may increase their interest


Yet, eventually, we want to be able to use
material from colleagues in other places, which
will give our students the chance to learn about
people in other places

Purpose


To engage students to bioinformatics by a
case studies approach


Problem solving of real cases scenario
