Saint Joseph's University (SJU) joined the Genomics Education Partnership (GEP) in 2011. Since then, Dr. Braverman has taught GEP materials in his undergraduate Bioinformatics course 4 times (Fall 2011, Spring 2013, Spring 2014, and Spring 2015). He used the materials at the graduate level (BIO 705) in Fall 2011. He attended the workshop in June 2011 and three alumni workshops (2012, 2013, July 2015). He also assisted in the planning of a regional GEP workshop held at Arcadia University on January 12, 2013, at which he presented on the experience of GEP implementation at SJU.
Presentations of GEP materials:
- CUR, June 2012 - presenting author - "The Genomics Education Partnership (GEP): A Cost‐Effective Approach to Enabling Undergraduate Genomics Research."
- Drosophila Research Conference, March 2015 - presenting author - "Comparative Genomics of the Muller F Element among Four Species."
- Sigma Xi Research Conference, SJU, April 2015, "Annotation of Five Regions on the Dot Chromosome of Drosophila elegans."
