Prerequisites:
Acceptance to U3 Honours Program.
Content:
The aim of this course is two-fold:  on the one hand it is intended to further interest in a wide range of biological topics, and on the other to promote acquaintance with recent  advances and research techniques in a chosen area of concentration. Students also participate in a “scientific writing” module.
Readings:
Research papers.
Method:
All students will attend 6 guest speaker seminars designated "honours seminars" by the Honours Director.  For each seminar the students will read research articles in advance, participate in discussion with the speaker and prepare a written summary of the talk. In April the students will organize a conference and present their own research data.
Evaluation:

Participation in discussion and written summaries (3 credits) and quality of presentation in the conference (1 credit).
