Class Size:   9  
CRN: 56906
In the course, students undertake a hands-on undergraduate research experience to describe, document, and publish the discovery of new bacteriophages (bacterial viruses). In doing so, students will elucidate how the genome codes biological information. The aim of the course is for students to develop further research and computational analysis skills while preparing to publish their scientific discoveries. The course will focus on research data analysis and presentation of research data to scientists and the public. Permission required.

BSCI 510 (M1) - Introduction to Biofabrication

Intro to Biofabrication

Credits: 4.0
Term: Spring 2020 - UNHM Credit (15 weeks) (01/21/2020 - 05/11/2020)
Class Size:   12  
CRN: 56998
This project-based course introduces students to the techniques and challenges of biofabrication. Students learn how additive manufacturing is used to combine cells with a variety of biolinks to create living tissues such as skin, cartilage, vascularized bone, and blood vessels. During this process students learn how to design for and operate 3D printing and bioprinting equipment. An emphasis will be placed on the ways in which this emerging technology impacts our society.

Additional Course Details: 

Students will discover the world of science and nature in Iceland with a focus on the geothermal and geologic wonders of Iceland—hot springs, geysers, mud pots, fumaroles, volcanic craters and more—as well as the biology and microbiology of the subarctic. From the capital Reykjavik students travel the popular Golden Circle route and see Gullfoss and other famous waterfalls, the Geysir geothermal area, geothermal plants and elaborate greenhouses powered by Iceland’s natural energy sources. Students will also experience the black-sand beaches of Vik and other excursions in Hvolsvöllur. In this course, students will meet before the Spring Break in weekly sessions to prepare for their travel as well as to design and develop a scientific project of their own that they will carry out while in Iceland and present after their return at the Undergraduate Research Conference in April 2020.  

This course will meet the Advanced Microbiology upper level course requirement for Biotech majors.
