Abstract

The world faces two seemingly unrelated challenges—a shortfall in the STEM workforce and increasing antibiotic resistance among bacterial pathogens. We address these two challenges with Tiny Earth, an undergraduate research course that excites students about science and creates a pipeline for antibiotic discovery.

Subject Areas

antibiotic discovery; STEM education; biosynthetic gene cluster; molecular networking; multi-omics
