Tiny Earth is a network of instructors and students focused on crowd-sourcing antibiotic discovery from soil. This book is a Research Guide to Student Sourcing Antibiotic Discovery, and it includes the printed book plus digital access to an e-Book version.
The challenges are huge...
Today we are fighting a shortage of effective antibiotics as superbugs evolve resistance to our most-used antibiotics. Simultaneously, we face a shortage of science trainees as unengaging introductory science courses fail to retain some of the best and brightest students in STEM fields.
But the solutions start tiny.
Unearthing new antibiotic-producing microbes from the soil can address a worldwide health threat while inspiring students to pursue careers in science. Tiny Earth brings the potential for global impact through original laboratory and field research conducted in introductory courses.
Tiny Earth is a network of instructors and students focused on crowdsourcing antibiotic discovery from soil.
The mission of the program is two-fold:
First, it seeks to inspire students to pursue careers in science through original laboratory and field research conducted in introductory courses with the potential for global impact.
Second, it aims to address a worldwide health threat the diminishing supply of effective antibiotics by tapping into the collective power of many student researchers concurrently tackling the same challenge, living up to its motto "student sourcing antibiotic discovery."
