BIO 425, 426, and 427 form a three-semester sequence of courses required to fulfill the research component for graduation as a Biology major. The first semester begins with an introduction to the skills required throughout the research. Proposals for the following semesters of research are developed and submitted. During the second semester, students work to complete the research outlined in their proposals. The final semester consists of presentation of the results as a publishable manuscript, a poster, and as an oral presentation. The equipment page gives a full list of equipment available for use in student research. As of Spring 2010, BIO 415 is now offered to students (with advisor approval) who prefer a different research route. This one-semester research course covers the development of research projects in groups, culminating in a poster as the presentation component.
