Bioinformatics in the class room: 'Wetenschap op Stap'

In the context of the VIB outreach project Wetenschap op Stap (link here), the BIG N2N project manager Dr. Katrijn Vannerum visited three primary school classes in Ghent to acquaint them with bioinformatics and its applications. The children were inducted into the genetic code: they cracked it both with their brains and with bioinformatic tools. Their enthusiasm for science is aroused!
Thanks to the teachers for inviting us: Dirk Hellebaut (De Stadspoort), Kim Terrie (Freinetschool De Harp) and Jo De Sloovere (VBS Het Klimrek).
