Authentic Research Experience in Microbiology (AREM) is a modular approach to integrating genomics research into the general biology or microbiology curriculum. AREM investigates the microbiome of New York City across its boroughs, its streets and parks and across time. AREM is the first large scale genomics approach to understanding makeup of microbial communities in the urban environment. AREM was created by Professor Theodore Muth at Brooklyn College and was funded by the National Science Foundation.
