BY160 Laboratory Research Poster Sessions

Last year the biology department applied to join and ultimately did join the Small World Initiative (SWI) consortium of educational institutions that aims to crowd-source antibiotic discovery. We implemented the curriculum associated with the SWI this semester in BY160 laboratories.

During the course of this semester our BY160 students cultured microbes from the soil and tested those organisms for antibiotic production. Next week, these new scientists are presenting their research during a poster session, and we would love to have you attend to hear about and ask them about their research and to celebrate their accomplishments.

There will be two poster sessions. Section one will present their posters on Thursday, December 14 from 3:05-4:45 pm, and section two will present on Friday, December 15 from 7:50-9:30 am. Both sessions will take place in the 3rd floor hallway of Albertus Hall. Everyone, regardless of scientific training or lack thereof, is invited to attend.

We hope you can join us!
