    Hi everybody! Here's a quick update on my project: 

    • I've changed the focus of this case study to pesticides and risk assessment in general as opposed to a single pesticide, glyphosate 
    • Large-scale pesticides monitoring data have been located from FDA and three years of data are incorporated into the case study for basic data analysis. Working on the questions on data analysis.
    • The second and third parts of the case study focus on the concept of risk and use a real EPA assessment case to teach students how to conduct basic ecological risk assessment. These two sections are 90% completed. 
    • Currently a student is helping out writing dialogues between three characters as part of the case and she wants to make a video of the dialogue as an introduction of the case study. Not sure how that will turn out but we'll see...

    October 2019 HITS update

    Greetings from the Antibiotic Resistance group,

    We’re well on our way with drafting and practicing with our case study! Our case is based on the Baym et al. paper “Spatiotemporal microbial evolution on antibiotic landscapes” (DOI:10.1126/science.aag0822). This study used a novel experimental system, called the MEGA Plate, to visualize and track bacterial evolution and the development of antibiotic resistance. There is also a short powerful video showing the experiment and development of resistance that can be used to capture students’ attention. We believe that our activity will be able to engage both biology and nursing students of all undergraduate levels. Our case study starts with a discussion on the history of antibiotic resistance (which acts as our hook), a jigsaw activity exploring different targets of antibiotics and different mechanisms of resistance, a discussion of the MEGA plate paper, and a bioinformatic activity using breseq to analyze whole genome sequences and identify mutations that occurred during the development of resistance. Instructors will be able to pick and choose which portions of our case study will work for their class. We are well on our way to drafting all of these activities and a piloting plan has been established. Our paper discussion was already piloted in Justin Pruneski’s class, the jigsaw activity was piloted in Nikolas Stasulli’s fall class, and the bioinformatic work will be piloted in Stephanie Carr’s fall class. All four group members will plan to to  pilot a more complete case study in their spring microbiology classes.

     

    We are currently holding biweekly Zoom meetings, and continually working on our drafts on the Google drive with the intent of finalizing our drafts in late May after our last pilot activities and end of the semester.

     

    Our biggest challenge is building a virtual space on QUBES for the bioinformatic portion of the activity. We first practiced with virtual machines but have since reached out to Drew LaMar and are now working to build a Juypter Lab on QUBES.

      Awesome! Thanks for the update Antibiotic Resistance group! It sounds like you have had the chance to pilot materials and are now refining them and working on the computer tools. Well done! Please keep us updated!
