DNA Biology and Bioinformatics summer camp for high school students at Oregon State University.

"Did you know that there are millions of DNA building blocks encoded in the genome of a plant? How can scientists possibly study this vast amount of data? With computers! Come and explore the tools of modern biology used to examine the complexities of DNA. This camp will involve hands-on activities where you will extract genetic material from a plant, assemble DNA sequences, identify genes using computers, examine your plant’s genome with visualization software, and test and look at your results in the laboratory. No programming skills required!"

Plant Ontology granted full membership of the Open Biomedical Ontology (OBO) Foundry.

The Plant Ontology project is happy to announce that the project have been granted full member status of the OBO Foundry ( After an extensive review by the OBO Foundry Editorial Working Group, the Plant Ontology (PO) and the Ontology for Biomedical Investigations (OBI) were judged to have performed well when measured against the accepted OBO Foundry Principles.
