HG 632

Experimental Genetic Systems

Fall Term - 1 credit

Mondays 1:00-2:15 PM
Location: 4917 Buhl

John Moran, Ph.D.

Course Description

The GTP trainees participate in this course in the Fall term. Active GTP faculty members present informal seminars (i.e., in the form a chalk talk presentation) about a research area in their laboratories to introduce GTP students to genetic strategies, research, and technologies used at the Michigan undergraduate and medical school campuses. The small group setting facilitates interaction and discussion among students and faculty. A recent, relevant publication (typically a review article) is distributed to the students one week prior to the class meeting to help them prepare for the discussion. A second faculty serves as a moderator to ensure an active discussion among the participants.
