OCEANS 74: Sustainability in Marine Organisms: Learning from the Evolutionary Survivors (BIO 74, BIOHOPK 74H)

While climate change has impacted life at land and sea, it's impossible to know exactly how fast species will adapt to warmer and more acidic sea water, and which species will survive into the future. In this course we will explore ancient marine organisms that have adapted and survived to diverse environmental changes across millions years of evolution, in order to better understand the molecular cellular and communal elements that allowed for their success. The course will include observation and experimentation with diverse marine organisms, lectures, readings, writings, and discussions.

OCEANS 114: Hopkins Marine Station Seminar (BIOHOPK 114H, BIOHOPK 214)

Introduction to research in marine science through a weekly seminar series at Hopkins Marine Station. The weekly seminars will approach questions of development, physiology, ecology, evolution, and oceanography using contemporary methods. Class offered in-person only at Hopkins Marine Station.
Terms: Win | Units: 1 | Repeatable 3 times (up to 3 units total)

OCEANS 140H: Statistical Modeling (BIOHOPK 240H, OCEANS 240)

(Graduate students register for 240H.) Introduction to applied statistical modeling in a Bayesian framework. Topics will include probability, regression, model comparison, and hierarchical modeling. We will take a hands-on, computational approach (R, Stan) to gain intuition so that students can later design their own inferential models. Prerequisites for this course include introductory statistics and some calculus or linear algebra, as well as previous exposure to scientific computing. Open to graduate students; undergraduate students may enroll with consent of instructor.

OCEANS 157: Creative Writing & Science: The Artful Interpreter (ENGLISH 157H, OCEANS 257H)

What role does creativity play in the life of a scientist? How has science inspired great literature? How do you write accessibly and expressively about things like whales, DNA or cancer? This course begins with a field trip to Hopkins Marine Station where Stanford labs buzz with activity alongside barking seals and crashing waves. The trip provides a unique opportunity for students to directly engage with marine animals, coastal habitats and environmental concerns of Monterey Bay. As historian Jill Lepore writes of Rachel Carson: "She could not have written Silent Spring if she hadn't, for decades, scrambled down rocks, rolled up her pant legs, and waded into tide pools, thinking about how one thing can change another..." Back on campus students will complete and workshop three original nonfiction essays that explore the intersection between personal narrative and scientific curiosity. You will develop a more patient and observant eye and improve your ability to articulate scientific concepts to a general readership. **This course takes place on main campus and is open to all undergraduate students. NOTE: Students must attend the first class meeting to retain their roster spot.
