Trichome biology is a focus for  labs offering summer internships in plant GenomicsPlant Genomics Researchers at Michigan State University collaborate on a summer training program for students enrolled in undergraduate studies in biology, chemistry, chemical engineering and computational sciences. The ten week program is designed to give students experience in the theory and practice of genomics and includes a wide variety of projects and participating laboratories. While the main emphasis is on gaining laboratory experience, the ten week program includes informal lectures from faculty and social activities. At the end of the program, students will present research project summaries of their work to all the project teams.
