The ChocoGen Project, led by King Jordan, is a collaboration between Georgia Tech and Colombia. This research is taking place in Choco, Colombia in order to discover and characterize the genetic heritage of the Choco people. Researchers want to understand the health-related implications of genetic mixing that has occurred in the region for over the past 500 years. In addition to the research, Jordan is leading trainings for bioinformatics enthusiasts in Columbia to teach them to use databases and computer programs to analyze genomic information. Jordan will also be teaching and developing curriculum for a post-Bachelor specialization in bioinformatics at the Universidad Tecnologica del Choco.
