CB-Cell Biology

CB 500. BioTeach. 3,6 Hours.

For teachers of science courses. Hands on exrepience. McWane Center BioTeach is a graduate-level introductory laboratory course in molecular biology designed for high-school science teachers. UAB faculty provide a lecture series covering topics that include AIDS, tuberculosis, cancer, forensic medicine, tropical diseases, neurobiology, human genetics, sickle cell anemia and ethical issues in genetic research. Lectures are coupled with hands-on, laboratory training in bacterial genetics, mutagenesis, DNA cloning, gel electrophoresis, polymerase chain reaction, DNA sequencing, forensic analysis, and applications of molecular biology. Science teachers will learn how to incorporate the laboratory experiments into their own classrooms and labs. BioTeach is a course in molecular and cellular biology primarily intended for in-service secondary education teachers, but also includes pre-service teachers. Students will receive state-of-the-art lectures from top UAB researchers on subjects that range from the biology of HIV/AIDS to molecular mechanism underlying hypertension. Each lecture is accompanied by a laboratory experience that the teachers can take back into their classrooms. Further, the teachers each develop a lesson plan that provides a format for teaching each of the BioTeach modules during a one-week secondary education science classroom experience. The Course is taught at McWane Science Center and can be taken for 1-6 credit hours, based on the students participation in the course.
