This is the home of the lab notebooks for students and instructors for the University of Washington Course- Ecology of Infectious Marine Diseases taught at the Friday Harbor Laboratories [Session B: July 21 - August 22, 2014 (5 weeks)].

This course is a training program in invertebrate-pathogen ecology that will bring together and train the future leaders in this rapidly emerging, multidisciplinary field. The course will 1) survey host-pathogen interaction in the Friday Harbor region, 2) teach diagnostic tools for identifying viral, bacterial, protozoan and fungal infections of invertebrates, 3) teach approaches to examine the invertebrate innate immune response to different pathogens, and finally 4) use these methods to address ecological questions about the distribution of pathogenic interactions, and the experimental effects of temperature and increased acidification on interactions. 

We are very grateful to ONSnetwork.org and the Open Science Federation for providing us with this platform to share our science.
