We seek rising sophomores and rising juniors majoring in the life sciences for a Research Experience for Undergraduates program in the Department of Evolution, Ecology, and Organismal Biology of The Ohio State University. Participants in this program will address questions about evolutionary relationships among plants, microbes, or animals using leading-edge molecular biology and informatics techniques for massively parallel DNA sequence data. In addition to skills in research project design, data collection, and analysis, this program will focus on professional development of the students, including meetings with biologists in industry, natural resource management, and the Columbus Zoo.
