I have had undergraduate students working on anything from a Web-based database on genes regulated by our Nuclear Factor I transcription factor family, to doing PCR analysis of gene transcripts in knockout mice, to doing transfection assays in tissue culture cells. It depends somewhat on the students skill set and desire to learn things in a specific area.
Disciplines: Physiology, Oral Biology, Neuroscience, Molecular And Cellular Biology, Medicine, Dentistry, Computer Science, Biotechnology, Biophysics, Biomedical Sciences, Biological Sciences, Bioinformatics And Computational Biology, Biochemistry
Student Skill-Set Needed: Basic biological sciences lab work or computer programming (Perl preferred). Junior preferred but talented Freshmen and Sophomores will be seriously considered.
Compensation: Academic Credit, Volunteer, Work Study
Available: Fall, Spring
