The Small World Initiative offers a new opportunity to conduct independent undergraduate lab research at the freshman/sophomore levels. It integrates a common research project with core biology concepts to create four distinct introductory courses (Biology for non-majors, Biology for majors, Microbiology, and Cellular and Molecular Biology).  The lab course can be used as a stand-alone lab or in concert with a lecture course.  The first cohort of implementers was trained in 2013. Since that time, over 50 faculty have been trained and have begun to implement this innovative lab.
