Register for Fall Research

There have been some discussions on the Facebook group and in some comments here, but I wanted to make sure it's clear. You are not required to register for the fall after taking the spring course, but it is HIGHLY encouraged and recommended. If you volunteer or get a fellowship for the summer, then you are expected to return in the fall to continue your work. The fall is set up much different that the spring. Much more independent wherein you get to propose a target and work on what you are interested in. Gwen will likely delve more into the published literature. 10 hours of lab a week.

You can only get one credit for either Ch 204 or Bio 205L. The only two options for credit in the fall are independent research courses: CH369K or BIO377. Unlike the spring, there are no conference courses for the fall.

(1) 50265 BIO 377 - Undergraduate Research-FRI
(2) 51845 CH 369K - Techniques of Research-FRI
Instructor: Hall, Bradley (though will change when Gwen officially graduates)
Lecture: WAG Tues 4-5:00 pm

There is no requirement, however, that you stick with the school with which you registered in the spring. Thus if you take spring CH204, you can take fall BIO377. Check with your advisor for which (likely both) counts toward your major. In certain instances (Microbiology and Pharm I think), the independent research must be in BIO or maybe it doesn't count? Don't quote me though.

As for the time/day of the lecture, you are HIGHLY encouraged to set this time free. But if you absolutely CANNOT make the lecture, other arrangements could be set. We would much rather have you continue with the Aptamer than quit because you couldn't fit the lecture in during the fall.
