: Over twenty plant genomics researchers at Michigan State University collaborate on this NSF funded summer training program for students enrolled in undergraduate studies in biology, chemistry or other related sciences, including computer and computational studies. Students must be entering their sophomore, junior, or senior year as of fall, and be a US citizen or permanent resident to apply.

The ten-week program is designed to give students experience in the theory and practice of genomics and includes a wide variety of projects. The main emphasis is on gaining laboratory experience, but the program also includes informal weekly lunches with faculty lectures, social activities, and a poster symposium.

Selected students are expected to participate the full 10 weeks of the program and work at least 40hours/week. In addition to the application, you must also include a short personal statement, resume/CV, official transcripts, and a letter of reference. This year completed applications must be emailed to by the deadline and include all materials to be considered.

Plant Genomics @ MSU provides participants with housing and meals on campus in addition to a stipend of $5,250. Limited travel assistance will also be available.
