Do you want to research in biology, but can't commit to many hours? Consider doing directed research in plant immunity gene discovery with Dr. Fumi Katagiri this semester. In PBio 4994 Directed Research, you can earn two credits. You can help discover plant genes that are important in immunity by exploring natural variation in the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana. The team hopes to have 10 to 15 students working together.
Students will work in the lab on the St Paul campus for five hours per week (the time is pretty flexible) and participate in the weekly project meeting (Fri, 1-2p.m). If you want to spend more hours for more credits, that can be arranged. If you are interested in working in the lab, e-mail Dr. Katagiri at email@example.com.
