GENET 250 - INTRODUCTION TO RESEARCH METHODS

[3-6 Credits]
This course will provide an introduction to basic research methods during the first year for directly admitted Genetics graduate Students. The course will consist of three 12-week rotations in three different laboratories in the Department to receive introduction to research projects and techniques used in any specific laboratory. These rotations are required to be completed in the first two semesters (fall and spring) of the first year the student is enrolled in the program. The primary objective of these rotations is to help the graduate students in selecting a laboratory/Major Professor in performing the Dissertation Research . Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory grades will be given for this course based on the preformance on the project and a report presentation to each of the laboratory mentors at the end of each rotation.
