The course is intended to give students hands-on experience in investigation of a fundamental question in biology using modern techniques and approaches in Genetics. The scope of the research project, formulation of the hypothesis, and the necessary experimental approaches taken to test the hypothesis will be determined based on active input from the student and the lab’s Principle Investigator. The student is expected to become increasingly independent in each of these aspects of the project.
