Summer Internships in Plant Genomics
10 week paid summer internships are available for visiting undergraduate students, secondary science teachers, and faculty at primarily undergraduate-serving institutions. The goal of the program is to provide mentored research experiences in plant genomics and build relationships in the greater scientific community for visiting participants and the whole project team.
This program is funded by various sources. Major funding is from National Science Foundation grants to participating laboratories to work on the functional genomics of Arabidopsis chloroplasts and peroxisomes, the biochemistry and developmental biology of tomato glandular trichomes and plant stress tolerance.
In 2010 the Department of Energy funded Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Consortium grants provided support for the program for students working on biofuel-related projects.
