The 2013 Summer School will use Amazon Web Services to host virtual GMOD instances containing the software and demo data used during the course. See GMOD in the Cloud for more information on the GMOD Amazon Machine Images available to the public. The tutorials used on the course will be available on this wiki for interested persons to work through.
GMOD thanks the National Evolutionary Synthesis Center (NESCent) for its continued support of the GMOD project and for providing the venue for this course. NESCent is interested in outreach to groups who are underrepresented in evolutionary biology and improving evolution education, and offers resources for scientists, educators, and the general public that meet these goals.
GMOD thanks the generous grant from the Amazon AWS in Education program, which provided free compute time on Amazon Web Services for the course tutors and participants.
