Summer undergraduate research in next generation sequencing at CSU San Marcos

Undergraduates interested in laboratory and bioinformatics methods for high-throughput “next generation” DNA sequencing have a well supported new opportunity at one of CSUN’s sister campuses this year.

The Department of Biology at CSU San Marcos is offering a new Research Experience for Undergraduates program that pairs student researchers with CSUSM faculty to work on projects using next generation sequencing in species ranging from brewer’s yeast to insects and invasive algae. The program runs from June 3 to August 8, 2019, and offers a $5,750 summer stipend, travel support to get to the CSUSM campus, on-campus housing, and per diem. Applications require two letters of recommendation, and are due March 31 — for eligibility details and to apply, see the program’s homepage.
