MI 70Q: Photographing Nature

Utilizes the idiom of photography to learn about nature, enhance observation, and explore scientific concepts. Builds upon the pioneering photographic work of Eadweard J. Muybridge on human and animal locomotion. A secondary goal is to learn the grammar, syntax, composition, and style of nature photography to enhance the use of this medium as a form of scientific communication and also to explore the themes of change across time and space. Scientific themes to be explored include: taxonomy, habitat preservation, climate change; species diversity; survival and reproductive strategies; ecological niches and coevolution, carrying capacity and sustainability, population densities, predation, and predator-prey relationships, open-space management, the physics of photography. Extensive use of field trips and class critque.
Terms: Spr | Units: 3 | Grading: Satisfactory/No Credit
Instructors: Siegel, R. (PI)

MI 104: Innate Immunology (IMMUNOL 204, MI 204)

Innate immune mechanisms as the only defenses used by the majority of multicellular organisms. Topics include Toll signaling, NK cells, complement, antimicrobial peptides, phagocytes, neuroimmunity, community responses to infection, and the role of native flora in immunity. How microbes induce and defeat innate immune reactions, including examples from vertebrates, invertebrates, and plants.

MI 215: Principles of Biological Technologies (IMMUNOL 215)

The principles underlying novel as well as commonly utilized techniques to answer biological questions. Lectures and primary literature critiques on topics such as fluorescence microscopy, including applications such as FRET and single-cell analysis; human and murine genetic analysis; FACS; proteomics and analysis of noncoding RNAs. Class participation is emphasized. Prerequisite: biochemistry. Required of first-year graduate students in Microbiology and Immunology and the Immunology program.

MI 225: Viral Hemorrhagic Fevers

Explores four families of human viruses (falviviruses, filoviruses, bunyaviruses, arenaviruses) that share certain clinical and pathological features. These families used to illustrate more general features of human virology ranging from molecular virology, viral replication cycles, transmission, clinical presentation, pathogenesis, diagnosis, treatment, epidemiology, public health responses, public policy, economics. After general introduction, each family will be presented, followed by sessions focused on comparisons and integration. Specific case studies focus on current events. Student assignments include problem sets, model-building, blogging, and comprehensive examinations. In-class sessions will include interactive lectures, guest speakers, students presentations, discussions.
Terms: Spr | Units: 4 | Grading: Medical Option (Med-Ltr-CR/NC)

MI 250: Frontiers in Microbiology and Immunology

Required of first- and second-year students in Microbiology and Immunology. How to evaluate biological research. Held in conjunction with the Microbiology and Immunology Friday noon seminar series. Before the seminar, students and faculty discuss one or more papers from the speaker's primary research literature on a related topic. After the seminar, students meet informally with the speaker to discuss their research.
