Introduction:The panel was part of the annual CCSCNE conference which was held at WesternNew England College in Springfield, Massachusetts on April 15 -16 2011.The session was well attended by twenty plus conference attendees, and there was ahealthy question and answer period after the brief presentations by the panelmembers that outlined their work at Wentworth and Wheaton. Professor LeBlanc wasinvited specifically to discuss the implications of teaching computer science tobiology majors and visa versa. All the presentations were interesting and informativeand stimulated questions about the difference between traditional CS topics andbioinformatics as well as questions about textbooks. Professor LeBlanc (WheatonCollege in Norton, Massachusetts) is co-author of “Perl for Exploring DNA” fromOxford University Press which is used in COMP 601, Introduction to Bioinformatics atWentworth.
