BIOS 261 Plant Anatomy and Cellular Structure: Fundamental Concepts to Interpret Data
Plant anatomy and cell biology. This two-week mini course will introduce the cell types of major organ systems in flowering plants through lectures and readings. Classic and modern techniques to highlight plant cell structures and dynamic processes such as changes in hormone concentration and microtubule dynamics will be presented in laboratory sections immediately following each lecture. Limit.... More Description for BIOS 261
BIOS 262 Learning to Fly: Drosophila Research Methods
This week-long mini-course will be an overview of the fly as a model system, and the tools available to fly researchers. It will cover topics like history, anatomy, development, online databases, genetic toolkits, genome editing techniques, and stem cell, immunology, and neural research methods. Lectures will be given by experts in the field, who will also be encouraged to discuss the advantages a.... More Description for BIOS 262
BIOS 263 Applied Grant-Writing Skills for Fellowships
Graduate students in the Biosciences PhD Programs develop a fellowship proposal (e.g. NIH F31) focusing on required documents: 1-page specific aims as well as research and career development plans. Students establish a writing practice and learn fundamental grant writing skills through guided exercises, including in-class review and focused faculty feedback.
