The course will introduce students to key concepts and laboratory research within the broad field of "Genome stability".
Students will learn to design, apply and evaluate current research strategies in a wide range of modern research areas encompassing the broad field of "Genome stability".
The course will consist of lectures, practical laboratory work in small groups, informal progress report sessions, and preparation and presentation of a poster. Lectures will be presented mainly at the start of the course to expose students to key concepts and techniques in the field. Students will team into small groups and work in one laboratory for the rest of the course. Students will meet regularly for informal "progress report" discussions of their projects.
