Undergraduate researchers generally conduct experiments under the direction of a research technician or graduate students. Specific experiments will be designed for each individual. Experiments include set up and analysis of fly genetic crosses as well as carrying out molecular and cell biological studies. Students are expected to keep clear, up to date scientific notebooks and may be asked to present their research at lab meeting upon completion of the project.
Honors genetics is preferred but not necessary.
The project is ongoing. Students typically spend between one semester and one academic year on the project.
The expected weekly time commitment of the undergraduate researcher is between 15 and 20 hours per week.
