Partnership with Carnegie Institution and Johns Hopkins University (JHU) provides student access to scientific data:

The partnership with C-MOOR (the Carnegie Massive Open Online Research platform developed by Carnegie and JHU) provides biology students access to real data, analytical tools, and an opportunity to develop a research project proposal. Our goal is to lower the barrier between data science careers and first-generation college students by increasing familiarity with the scientific process and the methods used by scientists for data interpretation. We collect and analyze the data, then share our findings with other teaching institutions.
