AMS 531, Laboratory Rotations in Computational Biology

This is a two-semester course in which first year Ph.D. students spend at least 8 weeks in each of three different laboratories actively participating in the research of participating Computational Biology faculty.  At the end of each rotation, students give a presentation of their lab activates and accomplishments.  The primary goal of rotations is to help students choose a research advisor and to help faculty members choose students.  Students register for AMS 531 in both the Fall and Spring semesters of the first year.

Offered in Fall and Spring semesters; 0-3 credits, S/U grading

As of Fall 2014, this course will be cross-listed with PHY 584
