Out of Your Seat and on Your Feet! An adaptable coursebased research project in plant ecology for advanced students
Learning ObjectivesStudents will: Articulate testable hypotheses. (Lab 8, final presentation/paper, inclass exercises)
 Analyze data to determine the level of support for articulated hypotheses. (Labs 47, final presentation/paper)
 Identify multiple species of plants in the field quickly and accurately. (Labs 23, field trip)
 Measure environmental variables and sample vegetation in the field. (Labs 23, field trip)
 Analyze soil samples using a variety of lowtech lab techniques. (Open labs after field trip)
 Use multiple statistical techniques to analyze data for patterns. (Labs 48, final presentation/paper)
 Interpret statistical analyses to distinguish between strong and weak interactions in a biological system. (Labs 47, final presentation/paper)
 Develop and present a conferencestyle presentation in a public forum. (Lab 8, final presentation/paper)
 Write a publicationready research paper communicating findings and displaying data. (Lab 8, final presentation/paper)

A Handson Introduction to Hidden Markov Models
Learning Objectives Students will be able to process unannotated genomic data using ab initio gene finders as well as other inputs.
 Students will be able to defend the proposed gene annotation.
 Students will reflect on the other uses for HMMs.

A first lesson in mathematical modeling for biologists: Rocs
Learning Objectives Systematically develop a functioning, discrete, singlespecies model of an exponentiallygrowing or declining population.
 Use the model to recommend appropriate action for population management.
 Communicate model output and recommendations to nonexpert audiences.
 Generate a collaborative work product that most individuals could not generate on their own, given time and resource constraints.
