Plant Genomics @ MSU REU Program

The Plant Genomics @ MSU REU Program provides high quality research and training experiences for undergraduates interested in biology, biochemistry, biotechnology, chemistry, bioinformatics, and computational sciences. During the 10-week program participants are embedded within a research group at Michigan State University and undertake a mentored research project with the overall aim of providing an experience akin to that undertaken by a first year graduate student. In addition to a 10-week research project, students participate in a range of professional development activities that includes workshops and seminars designed to enhance their scientific and professional skill sets as well as provide information on graduate school and careers within STEM disciplines.
