The GEP: Crowd-Sourcing Big Data Analysis With Undergraduates

Sarah C R Elgin et al. Trends Genet. .

Abstract

The era of 'big data' is also the era of abundant data, creating new opportunities for student-scientist research partnerships. By coordinating undergraduate efforts, the Genomics Education Partnership produces high-quality annotated data sets and analyses that could not be generated otherwise, leading to scientific publications while providing many students with research experience.

Keywords: CURE (course-based undergraduate research experience); bioinformatics; crowd-sourcing science; science education; undergraduate research.
