MI 217: Genome Editing: Redefining Humanity

Genome Editing is potentially the most important biological/medical strategy ever developed. Genome Editing has been used to manipulate diverse organisms and viruses including bacteria, plants, insects, nonhuman animals, human remediation, and treatment of genetic and other diseases in animals and humans. The advent of CRISPR-Cas9 and newer techniques has greatly increased the facility and speed with which Genome Editing can be carried out. It has become clear that the main factors limiting the power of Genome Editing are the human imagination and human imposed structures, - not technological limitations.

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.

MI 255: Measles and Sneezles and Things That Go Mumps in the Night

A study of measles (until recently one of the leading causes of death in the world and the most contagious disease agent ever studied) and its relatives in the paramyxovirus family, including mumps, parainfluenza viruses, hendra, and nipah, as well as a number of important animal pathogens. Investigates the nature of viruses using the paramyxoviruses as a paradigm. Topics include: the history of this devastating group of pathogens; basic aspects of paramyxovirus taxonomy and molecular virology; viral epidemiology, emergence, and eradication, including the pioneering studies of Peter Panum; the use, misuse, and abuse of science; the interactions between pathogen and host and how this interplay leads to disease, including the appearance of a bizarre brain complication with 100% mortality; the politics and economics of infection; how a putative link between the measles vaccine and autism entered the public eye, and how it refuses to disappear despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary. Lectures, discussion, student presentations. No science background necessary.

MI 260: Creative Visualization Studio

In this class, we will teach students to build small, physical explanations of their data for display and use as visual aids in person, at a poster or in a talk. We will use a range of media, including laser cutters, paper cutters, silk screening, CNC routing, 3D printing, jewelry making, embroidery, mold making, stop motion animation, or stained glass cutting. Classes will be split into workshop time¿for learning techniques and brainstorming¿and lab time, where students can work on individual projects. Students will be expected to complete 5 small visualization projects over the course of the quarter. Permission numbers are required to enroll. To obtain a permission number please email Professor David Schneider at dschneid@stanford.edu.
