The University of Central Florida has entered a bacterial genetics class of 54 students. Texas A&M, U. of North Texas, U. of Wisconsin-Parkside, North Dakota State and Michigan State are competing again this semester with UWP entering 2 courses. In all, there are more than 150 students competing this semester. They are under the careful supervision of a group of CACAO biocurators from Texas A&M consisting of either undergrads who have already completed CACAO at least once or grad students. We refer to these students as "CACAO II" and they are helping to make CACAO easier to scale up.
