Happy New Year!
How many of you think
using fun technology is a
good way to jump start
your audience?
(I hope it worked…)
Today I’m going to be reviewing an ASMCUE session called
Uncorking Microbrews
Even though you have no live microphone, please post comments
in the chat box and I will respond to you all at breakpoints.
Let’s start by taking a poll!
How many of you have attended a Microbrew session before?
What is a Microbrew?
Important Points:
Oral sessions are limited to 15 minutes
Assessment and data analysis are not required
PowerPoints and other technology are discouraged
(think: “chalk talks”!)

Writing A Microbrew Abstract
Step 1: Select your topic
Choices are wide open
Think about authentic classroom/lab/out of class activities
Presentations on products for purchase are NOT acceptable
Step 2: Create your abstract
Go to the ASMCUE website to submit online
Let’s See an Example!
Student-Created Microbiology Lab Exercises from Primary Source Literature – A Laboratory
N.T. Barden. Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences, Boston, MA.
In an upper division microbiology course (Advanced Microbiology) students perform various laboratory
exercises beyond those typically found in introductory microbiology level courses. The exercises for
these upper division students come from a variety of sources ranging from commercial laboratory
manuals, the instructor’s research interests, ASM’s Microbe Library, and primary literature
sources. For the most part, students perform the laboratory exercises as directed, collect the data,
and submit lab reports without ever thinking about or questioning the origins of the
exercises. Prompted by a genuine question from a student of “where do you get these exercises?”,
the class was challenged to create suitable lab exercises using primary literature sources from ASM
journals. Students were assigned to work in teams of 3 or 4 and were directed to select a research
article from the list provided or were given the choice to find their own article of interest. The activity
had them prepare an appropriate lab exercise based on the primary source article complete with an
introduction, a section of materials and methods, the specific lab instructions that the class must
follow, data collection, and interpretation of the results. So far, students have created and led
successful lab exercises for the isolation of Chromobacterium species from soil and the
characterization of their violacein pigment, the isolation of Thermus aquaticus from domestic and
commercial hot water sources, and the inhibition of swarming on various culture media by Proteus
vulgaris. Currently under development by this year’s class are exercises on E. coli chemotaxis, the
use of a 96-well plate and plate reader to perform an antibiotic assay, and the use of cold shock to
release periplasmic enzymes from Gram-negative bacteria. Examples of the student created lab
exercises will be provided.
