A Tiny Earth, global crises
Tuesday, November 5, 2019
4274 Chamberlin Hall
Sarah Miller, Wisconsin Institute for Discovery, will discuss Tiny Earth, the network of instructors and students focused on crowdsourcing antibiotic discovery from soil. The network aims to (1) inspire students to pursue careers in science through original research conducted in introductory courses with the potential for global impact, and (2) address two worldwide threats -- the diminishing supply of effective antibiotics and the soil erosion crisis.
