383H - Gene and Genome Analysis

About This Course
Gene and Genome Analysis is a hands-on project-based course where students explore the concepts and applications of modern DNA technology including an introduction to the basic concepts in the emerging field of genomics.

Preference for placement into the course will be given to academically excellent sophomores and juniors. I am NOT looking for extensive prior coursework--after all, for a course aimed at sophomores, this would not be expected. Also note that every time this course has been offered seniors have been in the class, so please apply if you are interested--don't count yourself out of the course.

Prerequisite: Biology 285 or Biochem 275.

Please fill out the form below. For any course listed that you have taken AT UMASS AMHERST, please indicate the semester the course was taken and the grade you received.

Students who submit their applications by November 17, 2014 will be notified of the instructor's decision by November 24, 2014. After November 17, enrollment will be on a rolling basis until the course is filled.

For those courses you have not taken, please leave spaces blank. If you have any issues with this form, please contact Susan Clevenger at clevenger@bio.umass.edu or 413-545-2287.
