Developmental Biology/ August 2024

+N3 Summer Program on Developmental Biology

Learning molecular and cellular mechanisms of development has been a fascinating subject in life science. Summer +N3 is designed for students who are interested in understanding developmental processes using genetic or genomic approaches. An intensive 2-week program will start with lectures on basic knowledge and tools in developmental biology. Then, each student will conduct a hands-on project under the supervision of participating faculty members. At the end of the course, students will share their results with all participants on the presentation day. Currently, we have yeast, C. elegans, Drosophila, planarian, leech, zebrafish, mouse, and Arabidopsis as potential materials for the course project. Students are encouraged to interact with their classmates and the faculty members during the course.

One-day Field trip

In addition to the lab experience and a couple of lectures, one field trip to explore the Taiwanese culture will be arranged. Students are going to visit local night market, Taipei 101, Taiwan National Palace Museum, and so on. Chances are such wonderful cultural baptism could build up as a part of beautiful memories in this program.
