Tiny Earth is a network of instructors and students focused on Tiny Earth Partner Instructorstudentsourcing antibiotic discovery
from soil. The mission of the program is two-fold:
First, it seeks to inspire students to pursue careers in science through original laboratory and field research conducted in introductory courses with the potential for global impact.
Second, it aims to address a worldwide health threat—the diminishing supply of effective antibiotics
—by tapping into the collective power of many student researchers concurrently tackling the same challenge, living up to its motto “studentsourcing antibiotic discovery.”
