Lecturer: Julian Chollet
Credits: 6 ECTS, 4 SWS
Date: 09.-11. November 2018 (09:00 – 17:00)
Venue: Marienstraße 7b, Biolab (Room 202)


This 3 day intensive course builds upon the practical skills acquired in the module “DIY Bio: doing things with biology” (by Mindaugas Gapsevicius) and aims to introduce you to the methodologies, project planning and experimental strategies in the natural sciences. While working in the DIY BioLab (Chair of Media Environments) you will learn how to think like a microbiologist and what it means to do scientific research. Educational objectives include literature research, experiment design, result documentation, discussion and scientific writing.

The course will be structured in a flexible way, tailored to the needs of the participants and the program will be developed collaboratively. Attendance during the 3 days of the course, as well as the delivery of detailed project documentation (paper, artwork, etc.) until the end of the semester is required. For students without prior experience in biological research this module is a requirement for attending the module “Artistic research in Experimental Biology” (11. - 13. January 2019).
