(Big picture ideas, and working on a simple build of an indoor composter for food waste)
o Bioreactor/lab equipment build project – Sat. March 11th 10am (Big picture ideas, initiate making bioreactor for online interactive protozoa “game”)
o Mushroom project – Sat. March 18th 10am (Big picture ideas, and start setting up for growing mushrooms at BUGSS and making flower pots out of myceilum)
o Estrogen sensor project – Sat. March 25th 10am (Agenda TBA)
o Bio-printing project – Inquire about times for meetup!
· Teams are asked to submit a proposal to WIN a BUGSS Community Project Award for money that could be used for supplies necessary to advance the project. Not a member yet but really want to join a community project, or at least learn more? (please contact Sarah – firstname.lastname@example.org). These projects will be valuable for our BUGSS community to work as a team to tinker, learn, explore, and accomplish some fantastic projects with biology!
Techniques in protein chemistry are utilized in practically every aspect of biomedical research. With the advances in decoding the human genome, there is now much to explore about the functions and roles of the genes encoded. Join us to learn the basics of protein biology as we isolate, quantify, and specifically identify proteins from bacteria. We will also discuss the applications of protein chemistry and how it impacts the biomedical sciences.

Samson Williams “Innovative Funding- Exploring Crowdfunding as an Option for Academic Research” TICKETS HERE
Best of all!? You can enter your bio-art work into a contest! The winner will receive an ASM T-shirt, a certificate, a GiantMicrobe, and his/her piece will be included in the Agar Art Gallery at ASM’s Microbe meeting (in New Orleans, LA, June 1-5, 2017).
Perhaps your work has what it takes to enter the national ASM contest and win over $400 in prizes? (Of course it does!) Get more information for this contest, examples of previous winners, as well as entry for the national contest here: http://www.asm.org/index.php/public-outreach/agar-art
Sign Up now to save your spot! We have 3 total workshops but we expect these to fill up quickly! Under 18 and want to give this a try? No problem but please have a parent or guardian with you and convince them to join in on the fun. This is for all ages and creativity!

Do you have the “BUG” for science outreach and communication? BUGSS is looking for community and member volunteers that are interested in science outreach and communication! Please come to our BUGSS Lab Meet up on April 5th from 7-8pm to learn more! TICKETS HERE!!
This is a condensed version of our Molecular Biotechnology Bootcamp course where we will immerse ourselves in hands-on learning of the foundational techniques of a molecular biologist and a great place to start for all of the other BUGSS courses!Molecular Biotechnology Bootcamp focuses on the knowledge base and laboratory skills necessary to carry out a project in synthetic biology. The course is project based and since we are short on time we will jump right into lab and get to work! While learning hands-on we will discuss the concepts behind each technique, why we use them, and beyond.TICKETS HERE
Saturday March 18th! We are seeking mentors and students that are interested! Do you know any high school students that would be interested in hands-on learning in the lab by building with biology this summer? Do you want to help mentor students in the lab this summer while overseeing an incredible project? (photo credit: John Dean)
