Email Discussion Group for Educators and Technicians

Scroll down for an Index of Past Discussion Group Topics

Join an email based discussion group specifically for educators and technicians to exchange common issues. Currently the list numbers over 80 individuals. Discuss with your peers any variety of biotechnology related issues, eg: educator training, curriculum, new techniques, biopharmaceuticals, genomics, bioinformatics, envioronmental biotechnology, agricultural biotechnology, etc. Pose questions to others and share solutions that have worked for you. This is an oppportunity to talk to other educators and technicians across the country. Any reply to an email topic automatically sends the message to all subscribers to the group.
