Fall ’14 Events

[12/04/2014] The BIB club is having an event on Thursday. This is a faculty member from Hunter who works with informatics. Additionally, for whose who are looking or interested for an internship, this would be a great opportunity for you to ask and introduce yourself.

Pizza will be served!!



[11/07/2014] The field trip event will include close collaboration with a local high school to engage students and foster and interest in the field of science. In this venue, the club will host a “Spooky Metagenomics” event which will take place in November 7, 2014 from 1pm to 3pm. Students will dress in festive costumes and collect specimens from the ponds of a local cemetery. BIB club members will sequence the specimens in the lab (as the same time, they are going to work with the high school students for DNA preparation and sequencing), which will then present these findings to the high school at a later date.

This field trip is limited to 10 students and the cost per student is $5. (However, the cost will be covered by the funds  )

Location: 500 25th Street Brooklyn, New York 11232
