BIOS 265: Introduction to Quantitative Reasoning in Biology

Mini-course. Focus on development of basic skills for quantitative reasoning in biology, including order-of-magnitude estimation and use of the broad spectrum of time scales to enable understanding. Primary examples include going from molecular size and energy scales to functions of single cells and going from mutational and selective processes acting on organisms to evolution of populations on laboratory global scales.

BIOS 266: Mini Proposal Bootcamp

In an intensive 1-day format, students learn the fundamentals for writing competitive fellowships, i.e. NIH NRSA fellowships (F30, F31, F32). Topics include developing specific aims; outlining research and career development plans; and using the review criteria to inform writing. Students develop early drafts of the 1-page specific aims, NIH biosketch, and training plan, and receive feedback from instructor. Students are expected to be in the early stages of writing a fellowship proposal.

BIOS 270: Planetary Health: Socioeconomic & Ecological Links Between Human Health & Earth's Natural Ecosystems

Two of the biggest challenges humanity has to face - promoting human health and halting environmental degradation are are strongly connected and too big to be addressed in an incremental, sector-specific way. Breakthroughs can be achieved through a creative, interdisciplinary approach that fully recognizes the complex nature of links between human health and healthy, functioning ecosystems. Through a series of lectures and case-study discussions with experts from multiple Schools and Departments, students will develop an in-depth understanding of the "Planetary Health" concept, its foundation, goals, priority areas of action and methods of investigation, and the most relevant immediate and long-term challenges.

BIOS 271: Writing Graduate Research Fellowships

Initial sessions focus on the basics of grantsmanship, review criteria (i.e. intellectual merit and broader impact), and required materials, with particular focus on the National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP). Students draft a 2-page research proposal and 3-page personal, relevant background and future goals statement. During small group peer review sessions, students receive detailed feedback to improve the clarity of their writing.

BIOS 274: Introductory Python Programming for Genomics

An inherent part of genomics research is the creation and then analysis of large quantities of data. A variety of useful tools are available for data analysis; however, research often requires the skill to create software scripts to extend the analysis. You will learn the basics of the Python programming language. Lectures will foster developing the basics through the process of writing code. Discussion sections will build on the skills from lectures by applying them to complete assigned problem sets. Problem sets are designed to learn good coding style, logic, and the use Python libraries. No programming experience is required.

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 279: Applied Grant-Writing Skills for Science and Engineering Students

Participants develop proposals in the non-medical fields of science and engineering (e.g. for the National Science Foundation) focusing on required documents such as the 1-page Project Summary, Broader Impacts, Intellectual Merit, and Research Plan. Students establish a writing practice and learn fundamental grant writing skills through guided exercises, including in-class review and focused faculty feedback.

BIOS 280: Apico-basolateral Epithelial Cell Polarity

Cells must polarize, localizing unique macromolecules along distinct axes, to function correctly. This lecture/lab mini-course will provide students with a broad overview of cell polarity, using recent literature to guide understanding of the shared and divergent mechanisms underlying polarity establishment in different tissues and organisms. Additionally, students will engage in hands-on research using C. elegans and a large particle flow cytometer (BIOSORTER) to perform high throughput forward genetic screens to discover novel pathways involved in epithelial polarity establishment. This course is geared toward STEM graduate students, postdocs, and advanced undergraduates interested in topics and applications in cell and developmental biology.

BIOS 281: Career Explorations Opportunities: Transitioning to your Career Choice

The Career Exploration Opportunities (CEO) program highlights the skills necessary to make significant contributions to scientific research, business, policy, communication, and more. This course offers tools and exercises to help late-stage trainees clarify academic and professional priorities. Trainees will be empowered to take charge of their chosen career of choice options through hands-on experiences, which fit their skills, interests, and values.Throughout this course, trainees will receive ongoing support from mentors and employers in their desired field as they develop a job search plan, create tailored resumes/cvs, and cover letters, become more confident in their networking, interviewing, and negotiation skills, and choose the experiential learning options necessary to transition to the next phase of their professional development.

BIOS 282: Clarifying Career Choices: Your Self-Reflective Research Project

Using the ADAPT Integrated Development Model, this course will focus on the areas of Development and Awareness. It is designed for students who aspire to gain clarity and insights about themselves their career choices and options. It is designed to encourage self-knowledge and increased awareness of roles and job opportunities inside and outside of academia, where an in-depth Science background is desired. The course requires students to complete up to 3 assessments, short writing assignments, and participate in small group discussions. All students will have the opportunity to have a 1:1 follow-up session with the Instructor to discuss the insights gained from the course as well as opportunities to network with alumni and future employers from various fields.
