Presentation Type

Poster

Disciplines

Molecular Genetics | Population Biology | Scholarship of Teaching and Learning

Description/Abstract

Course-based Undergraduate Research Experiences (CUREs) involve classes of students in addressing real-world research questions without pre-defined outcomes. BIOL380/381, Research in Pathogen Biology, was designed as an advanced CURE for 300-level Biology students at ODU, and examines population genetics of two ticks, Amblyomma maculatum (Gulf Coast Tick) and Amblyomma americanum (Lone Star Tick) in Southeastern Virginia. This work will compare genetic connectedness of populations of these ticks within SE Virginia, as well as with their historical ranges in the US southeast. The work is of relevance to the broader scientific community and to the public, as both of these ticks harbor human pathogens.
