We will require relatively minimal math/CS background for biology teachers, providing specific background to needed topics during the first part of our educational program.

The math/CS background needed is more about problem solving ability than about specific mathematical skills. Basic high school mathematics, including algebra, exponents, and logarithms will be required. Some comfort with algorithmic analysis is important.

All biological sciences teachers in the program will be expected to be familiar with the basics of DNA structure, function, replication, and sequencing, as well as the basics of protein synthesis, structure, function, transcription, and translation.
