These initiatives gave rise to an exponential increase in the volume and diversification of data, including nucleotide and protein sequences and annotations, high-throughput experimental data, biomedical literature, among many others.
These students experience full immersion in the research world of a field of science. With small lab teams and many hours spent working directly with experienced scientists and faculty, they benefit from the rich learning environment at MBL, where education and research training are merged.
She will later incorporate a protein into the bilayer to study the effects of pH on its function. Megan Costello Below, Profs.
How do students benefit from the intensive schedule and more instructor contact than is typical in a traditional college course? Total immersion courses such as these are completely different from standard college courses. They allow students to focus entirely on one topic, think deeply, and explore in the lab.
The continuity of the courses allows students to set up experiments and follow through on them in a way that is impossible in a traditional schedule, where students are coming to lab once a week. Some of the techniques were state of the art, e. The data generated through these projects will be deposited into publicly available databases, such as iNaturalist and GenBank, so that they can be utilized by the greater scientific community.
In addition, a colleague who owns a technical company in Germany came during the final week and worked directly with the students on individual projects using equipment manufactured by her company.
She also gave a presentation about her path from graduate student to owner of a successful biotech company. Thus, we were three women and four men, tenured professors and job seekers, scientists at the start and end of their careers, individuals from academic environments and business.
Consequently, the students were able to question and listen to individuals with a variety of styles and views. The September Courses are open to students in all majors.
How do non-science majors benefit from being in a research environment like MBL? Extensive contact with the faculty allows informal, unscripted conversation. It was not our purpose to sell careers in science. Instead, we offered a life experience.
We had students interested in neurobiology and medicine, computer science, one in molecular engineering, one in urban planning, one in art conservation, and several undecided or uncommitted.
Yes, we present an intensive course in biophysics. But the intent was to make our students comfortable with science. Too often science is presented in what I will call the Dr. Frankenstein complex — as strange, inaccessible, or different from common experience.
Our goal is to allow students to leave the University of Chicago as science comfortable, regardless of their future careers.
For many [of the students], this was their first opportunity to do experiments where the results were not known in advance. It allowed them to grapple with the realities of research, where techniques have to be optimized and first attempts often fail.
In these courses, students find that with focus, teamwork, perseverance and a bit of courage, they are able to make brand new discoveries! This principle applies equally to scholarly research in all fields.
Christina Ford and Alyssa Condie display the plans for and the patch clamp amplifier that they built from scratch in the "Proteins in Action" course.Rule 3: Take Notes While Reading.
If you read the papers first, and only afterwards start writing the review, you will need a very good memory to remember who wrote what, and what your impressions and associations were while reading each single paper.
