MCDB 300 - Undergraduate Research
Section: 001
Term: WN 2019
Subject: Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology (MCDB)
Department: LSA Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology
Credits:
1 - 3
Requirements & Distribution:
BS
Other:
Independent
Consent:
With permission of instructor.
Advisory Prerequisites:
Eight credits of BIOLOGY/MCDB courses; 3.0 GPA in science courses.
Other Course Info:
Continuing Course. Y grade can be reported at end of the first-term to indicate work in progress. At the end of the second term (MCDB 300 or 400), the final grade is posted for both term's elections. Three credits of independent research must be completed in one term to satisfy a Biology laboratory requirement. A maximum of three credits of any independent study course may count toward the Biology concentration programs.
BS:
This course counts toward the 60 credits of math/science required for a Bachelor of Science degree.
Repeatability:
May be repeated for a maximum of 9 credit(s).

Independent research is defined as a laboratory project in which the student will have a say in the design, conduct, and interpretation of experiments. Library research projects and lab projects which are strictly a technical training experience do not qualify for credit as undergraduate research.

Course Requirements:

A final paper is required and must be approved by the research advisor.

Intended Audience:

MCDB 300 is intended primarily for juniors, including Biology or CMB Honors students, who wish to pursue independent research at an intermediate level in an area of biological science. Students may ask an appropriate faculty member in the Department of Molecular Cellular and Developmental Biology to direct the research project and supervise related readings. Alternatively, students may identify a research advisor in another LSA department, the U-M Medical School, or another unit on the UM campus. Students conducting independent research in such outside units must identify a co-sponsor within the Department of MCDB.

Class Format:

Independent

The CourseProfile (ART) system, supported by the U-M Provost’s 3rd Century Initiative through a grant to the Office of Academic Innovation, provides additional information about: course enrollments; academic terms and instructors; student academic profiles (school/college, majors), and previous, concurrent, and subsequent course enrollments.
