Welcome to the 2017 edition of the Life Science Technologies project course!
In this course, students will form groups of up to 6 students that are each working on a chosen project from January until May.
Project registration will be open between January 2 and January 10 here in MyCourses! There is a limited number of students for each project and we will work on a first-come-first-served basis! Due to the problems in the registration a new registration has been opened and the old one closed. The old registrations have been transferred to this 'New Enrolment'.
There will be an opening event on Jan 11 (8:15-9:00, hall T2 at the CS building), where we will go through practicalities (how the course is organized and what is expected of you), followed by breakout sessions with the project instructors (9:00-10:00).
Then, the groups will have one week to familiarize themselves with the project materials and come up with a preliminary project plan, to be discussed with the instructors (exact time and place to be set with the instructors). After this, groups will meet with supervisors at two-week intervals to discuss their progress; there may be other meetings depending on the project at hand.
After each meeting with the supervisor, the group should return the minutes of the meeting via MyCourses (a brief 1-page document on what was discussed, what the results are at this stage, and what the next steps are will do).
Halfway through the course we will organize a get-together session with all groups presenting their intermediate findings (March 9). At the end of the course (May 9), final results will again be presented to all other groups.
