BIOS 251 Biotechnology in the Natural World (SBIO 251)
Life can be found in some of the strangest and most inhospitable places of Earth. Whether in hot springs, oceanic depths, or dense rainforests, living organisms must be natural specialists to survive. This course explores a selection of strange and ingenious biomolecules that natural organisms have evolved in order to survive. Lectures will cover historical background as well as detailed investiga.... More Description for BIOS 251
BIOS 252 Experimental strategies for understanding plant-environmental responses
This mini-course will explore the specific aspects of the environment that plants sense, the impacts these stimuli have on plant physiology and the state-of-the-art in experimental methods used to study plant-environmental interactions. Each week will include a lecture, group discussion and lab focused on one of three key environments: the soil, canopy and agricultural field. Lectures will provide.... More Description for BIOS 252
BIOS 253 Discovery and Innovation in Emerging Viral Infections
An interdisciplinary mini course focused on challenges posed by emerging viruses and innovative efforts to overcome them. Modules include epidemiology and ecology of emerging viral infections, such as Ebola, dengue, and Zika, discovery of new emerging viruses, development and application of molecular assays for the diagnosis and management of emerging viral infections, bioinformatics and genetic a....

BIOS 255 Promises and Pitfalls: A Critical Evaluation of Neuroscience Techniques
The complexity of modern neuroscience requires researchers to develop an interdisciplinary approach. This course explores multiple technologies for understanding the brain and is less a survey of different techniques than a critical comparison of them. With the goal of incorporating a new technique into their own research projects, students will address potential advantages, disadvantages and limi.... More Description for BIOS 255

BIOS 256 Sculptural Data Illustrations
Mini-course. Students will use learn make and print 3D models of their data to use as a focal point when describing their project. We will teach the students how to use Autocad and Blender to process existing data sets and students are encouraged to bring their own data. We strive to make wearable models to enable instant mini-lectures any place and anytime.
