2017 Bio-Link Summer Fellows Forum

Presenters: Carole Twichell and Bridgette Kirkpatrick Take a look at a great classroom activity/exam question about restriction enzymes. The learning objectives for the activity are: •Proper use of restriction endonucleases •Tying restriction fragmentation to electrophoresis •Critical Thinking •Use of internet resources Students will need to develop strategies using only restriction endonucleases and electrophoresis to solve plasmid cloning problems.

Presenters: Bridgette Kirkpatrick & Carole Twichell Description: We will present a classroom activity that can be used to teach plasmid cloning and the use of the CRISPR/Cas9 system for gene editing. The activity uses paper models to illustrate the action of restriction endonucleases, ligation, and recognition and cleavage by CRISPR/Cas9. Participants will receive materials and instructions to take back to their institutions. Read more
Presenter: James Guenther 6/7/2017 This session is intended to give an overview of the process used by many entrepreneurs, and pioneered by Steve Blank. Each section of the "business model canvas" will be discussed and related back to new business startups or how a biotechnology program is a really a small business startup. Participants are encouraged to come with business or product ideas that can be explored in the session. Presented 6/7/2017 Read more
Presenters: Jeanette Mowery and Lisa Seidman ​Agenda •Introduction; reproducibility in science, a contemporary hot topic •The causes of irreproducibility that everyone talks about •The causes of irreproducibility that we talk about – but they don’t •Bio-Linker’s contributions to the discussion •A call to action – what comes next?

Summer Fellows 2017 presentation about regulation certification
Presenter: Vivian Ngan-Winward, PhD, CMQOE The in vitro diagnostics sector should be very familiar to the Bio-Link community with products such as test kits and analyzer instrumentation. Changing regulations now impacting this sector mean companies will need to adapt their quality systems and increase internal competencies. The salient regulatory changes will be presented and those where biotech educators may be able to work with companies to address will be highlighted. In addition, industry-critical career tracks alternative to the traditional research and manufacturing paths and how biotech educators can prepare students for these will be presented.

CCTA Webinar on Career Exploration

In this age of emerging technologies, many students and their parents have not been exposed to the great variety of careers open to them. Career exploration is taking on an increasingly important role in community college programs. The Centers Collaborative for Technical Assistance (CCTA) hosted a host a webinar on Career Exploration and provided examples of career exploration tools that are available to students, teachers, faculty members, counselors and others who are interested in assisting students make wise career choices. A recording of the webinar can be found on the CCTA website. Elaine Johnson, PI and Executive Director of Bio-Link, ... Read more
Presenter: Deborah Overath Description: Case studies are an effective active learning technique for the bioscience classroom; however, it can be a little overwhelming to use a case study or adapt it for your own classroom for the first time. This session is designed to help participants gain experience and confidence in using and adapting case studies. The first half of the session will be devoted to participants doing a case study written by the presenter for the National Center for Case Study Teaching in Science peer-reviewed case collection on the connections between Mendelian and molecular genetics using the discovery of ...
