The Harlem DNA Lab, an education facility that will provide students and teachers throughout the five boroughs with a program of laboratory-based study has recently opened. The genome lab, which was built within the John S. Roberts Education Complex in East Harlem, is the result of collaboration between the N.Y.C. Dept. of Education and the Dolan DNA Learning Center, part of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory.Tags:
The Harlem DNA Lab is a city-wide resource, thanks to contributions from The Dana Foundation, the Jerome L. Greene Foundation, The Goldman Sachs Foundation, and William Townsend Porter Foundation. The lab will teach students and educators using techniques and tools currently used by research scientists on the forefront of genome study. Middle and high school students visiting the lab on half-day field trips will participate in programs and lab activities designed to complement the scope and sequence of city and state science curricula.
