Educational Hub for Enhancing Diversity in Computational Genomics and Data Science
Educational Hub for Enhancing Diversity in Computational Genomics and Data Science
The Educational Hub for Enhancing Diversity in Computational Genomics and Data Science, or “the Hub,” is an NIH initiative that leverages NHGRI’s Genomic Data Science Analysis, Visualization and Informatics Lab-space (AnVIL) and other NIH cloud-based platforms to enhance the diversity of individuals with access to educational opportunities in computational genomics and data science (CGDS). NHGRI, together with the NIH Office of Data Science Strategy (ODSS), the National Institute of Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD) and the All of Us Research Program (AoU) launched the Hub in 2021 to enhance diversity in cloud-based genomic data science education. This initiative aims to support educational opportunities for undergraduate and masters’ degree students who are enrolled in institutions currently under-represented in CGDS. Examples of such institutions include, but are not limited to, historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs), Hispanic-serving institutions (HSIs), tribal colleges and universities (TCUs) and women’s colleges (collectively referred to as target institutions).

The goal of the Hub is to carry out foundational activities that increase awareness of cloud computing and CGDS concepts among faculty and students at target institutions and facilitate the development of educational material to be used at those institutions.
