BIOS 200: Foundations in Experimental Biology

This course is divided into two 3-week cycles. During the first cycle, students will be developing a 2-page original research proposal, which may be used for NSF or other fellowship applications. In the second cycle, students will work in small teams and will be mentored by faculty to develop an original research project for oral presentation. Skills emphasized include: 1) reading for breadth and depth; 2) developing compelling, creative arguments; 3) communicating with the spoken and written word; 4) working in teams. Important features of the course include peer assessment, interactive joint classes, and substantial face-to-face discussion with faculty drawn from across the Biosciences programs. Shortened autumn quarter class; class meets during weeks 1 through 8 of the quarter.

BIOS 202: Understanding Kinetics for Biologists and Biology

Students in the biological and chemical sciences are typically exposed to the kinetic and thermodynamic formalisms that describe rate and equilibrium processes, but rarely develop an intuition that allows them to use the material creatively in their own research. This Mini-course is designed to help each student begin to develop this intuition and an ability to evaluate the literature and their own data in terms of kinetic and thermodynamic models. This will be achieved through a combination of interactive lectures, in-class problem-solving, and a tutorial problem set that can be completed individually or in groups.

BIOS 217: Foundations of statistics and reproducible research

Introduction to foundations of rigorous, reproducible research in experimental biology and clinical research. Provides conceptual framework for linking hypotheses to experimental design, quantitative measurement, statistical analysis and assessment of uncertainty. Course combines lecture presentation and discussion of core concepts from statistics and reproducibility with hands-on exposure to best practices for reproducible workflows spanning design, data collection, annotation, analysis and presentation of results. Brief discussion of social, legal, and ethical issues with reproducibility in scientific practice, along with NIH grant requirements. Course provides foundations for future learning in these areas. Examples drawn from multiple areas of experimental biology and clinical research. Target audience: Students in BIOS 200 (Foundations in Experimental Biology), in Biosciences graduate programs or T32 training programs. Prerequisites: None

BIOS 241: Data Wrangling with Bash

This one week course workshops writing bash scripts to reproducibly clean-up and transform raw data for analysis. Topics include introduction to bash, command-line tools for data manipulation, and best practices for scripting. Students will automate conversion of their own raw data to an input format for analysis. No prerequisites.

BIOS 242: Writing Compelling Fellowships and Career Development Awards

An overview of principles and fundamentals for writing competitive fellowships (e.g. NIH F31, F32) and career development awards (e.g. NIH K Awards). Topics include: developing specific aims and career development plans; using the review criteria to inform writing; timelines and resources. Participants develop proposals through guided exercises with an emphasis on in-class peer review and focused faculty feedback.

BIOS 249: Single-cell Spatial-omics: with Applications to Stem Cell Engineering and Cancer Immunotherapy

With many technological breakthroughs in the past decade, single-cell biology has blossomed in many fields, enabling us to ask questions that were not possible before. However, many of the single-cell biology technologies include a dissociation step, which destroys the crucial spatial information. Therefore, a new wave of technology focusing on single-cell spatial-omics emerges to overcome this challenge. This course will explore seminal and new experimental and computational strategies employed in both the conventional single-cell omics and the new single-cell spatial-omics, emphasizing applications to stem cell engineering and cancer biology. We will teach you how to design and analyze single cell-omics data, using questions and data from stem cell biology and cancer biology to provide the motivational background. Basic stem cell and cancer biology will be covered. Pivotal studies regarding cell identity and single-cell biology will drive discussion on the fidelity of engineered cell populations and the challenges of understanding cell fate decisions.

BIOS 277: Prions in Health & Disease

Prions consist of misfolded, polymerized proteins and are agents of transmissible neurodegenerative diseases such as bovine spongiform encephalopathy and Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease of man. However, "prion-like" polymerization of proteins is a more general phenomenon involved in a long-term memory, innate immunity and most likely other important functions. In microbes, prions are non0Mendelian genetic elements. The course will emphasize that "prion-like" polymerization is part of a more general allosteric regulation of gene expression that can sometimes go wrong, as in Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases, and only exceptionally may cause transmissible infectious disease that spread in the population.

BIOS 299: Online Proposal Bootcamp

This 9-week Proposal Bootcamp guides grant writers through the process of developing a compelling fellowship (e.g., NIH F31, F32) or career development award (e.g., NIH K99/R00, K01, K08, etc.). Participants gain new grant writing skills through synchronous, including Mini Lectures and Grant Coach Office Hours, and asynchronous, including recorded videos and readings, activities. Students and postdocs join our award-winning peer review program for feedback on key proposal documents. This Bootcamp is 100% remote and open to all Stanford affiliates.
