DIY Diagnostics student collecting water samples from Waller Creek.
What will you do?
Students can expect to learn about the design process (how do I brainstorm innovative ideas that solve a problem in a new way?), biochemical detection (how do I develop a test that indicates the health of the patient?), interfacing with the virtual world (how do I make a website or app to interface the diagnostic output to a computer?), and machine learning algorithms and artificial intelligence computer programming (how do I tap into the vast array of diagnostic and social data available on the web to improve my diagnostic outcome?).
Specific skills include but aren’t limited to:
- Design theory
- Culturing bacteria
- isothermal LAMP PCR
- DNA extraction
- DNA sequencing
- App programming
- Website development
- Image processing
- Data storage and manipulation
- Machine learning and artificial intelligence (coming soon)
- Social network analyses (coming soon)
