Barcode Long Island
Educator Workshop

The Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory DNA Learning Center is an approved Sponsor of Continuing Teacher and Leader Education (CTLE).

Teachers are eligible to attend a summer training workshop if they teach a high school science class or research program. Teachers must attend a five-day DNA barcoding workshop before they may mentor teams for BLI.

In the DNA barcoding workshop, participants will be introduced to the project, learn all the biochemical and bioinformatics techniques required for DNA barcoding, and learn how to mentor student barcoding teams. Each workshop is six hours a day for five days. Teachers who complete this workshop will be invited to organize student teams, who will carry out all aspects of DNA barcoding research during the school year. Teachers who attended a week-long training workshop in previous summers may not register to attend the barcoding workshop a second time.

The 2019 summer training workshop will be held at the Hyatt Place Long Island/East End at the Long Island Aquarium in Riverhead, New York. Attendees will receive CTLE credit, a light breakfast and lunch daily, and aquarium admission on Friday.
