Recently, during the STEM Seminar Symposium on June 1st, 2023, Boz launched their metagenomics database, presented by Flannery McLamb. The database gives global access to student collected data for researchers and students alike. Regular updates and international research will continue to make the database an important hub for researchers looking for metagenomic data. However, the significance not only lies in the applicability of the database – the information found on the database was also partially gathered by high school and college students working in programs led by Boz Institute. This allows students to participate in global science at an age when tangible real-world science isn’t often taught. By seeing the global possibility of their efforts, students can understand the potential they have in science.
