Metagenomics Discovery Challenge (MDC) is a certificate-based course. This independent study course is offered in a hybrid format and it will be using the Team-Based Learning pedagogy and Open Educational Resources. MDC doesn’t have any prerequisites, but a background in biological sciences and/ or computer science would be helpful. Students will learn how to use the cross assembly programs and Next Generation Sequencing (NGS), then apply those skills by hunting for new viruses—as well as looking for the genetic hallmarks of antibiotic resistance—in real datasets of DNA. At the end of the semester, students will create a 3-5 minute video using KCC CUNY resources to explain the tools they’ve learned, the importance of viral discovery and antibiotic resistance, and their discoveries.
