Are you interested in getting biology research experience?

Are you interested in getting biology research experience? The Treehouse Childhood Cancer Initiative and the Vaske lab are sponsoring an undergraduate bioinformatics immersion (TUBI) research group in the spring quarter of 2021. Bioinformatics uses computational methods to study biology, typically analyzing biological studies that have generated a lot of data. Student researchers in TUBI  will work in a supportive environment on bioinformatic projects related to finding cancer treatment options for individual kids using gene expression analysis. Students of all majors are encouraged to participate. There are no prerequisites. TUBI is open to undergraduate students and community members who do not have prior experience in coding or biological research. Students will be driving their own learning experience in a collaborative environment with other students and mentors. The group will meet twice per week online and have a total commitment of 10 hours per week. We especially want to help students from underrepresented groups have more research opportunities. If you are interested in getting information about TUBI and the application process, please sign up here by Friday February 19. We will be contacting you with more information. Please share this with friends and other students who may be interested!
