Type of Research Project
- Basic science
What is the background of the project?
We, human being, now have the information of almost entire nucleotide sequence of our own genome DNA. However, it is just the primary structure of DNA. To practically use the information, we must decipher the meaning of 3-billion-base sequence.
What is the aim of the project?
Please inquire us via your NORE
What techniques and methods are used?
Please inquire us via your NORE
What is the role of the student?
- The tasks will be done under supervision
What are the tasks expected to be accomplished by the student?
Please inquire us via your NORE
Will there be any theoretical teaching provided (preliminary readings, lectures, courses, seminars etc)
Please inquire us via your NORE
What is expected from the student at the end of the research exchange? What will be the general outcome of the student?
- The student will prepare a scientific report
What skills are required of the student? Is there any special knowledge or a certain level of studies needed?
Basic knowledge of human molecular genetic
Basic technique of the personal computer
One who can write the computer program (language does not matter) will be better.
Are there any legal limitations in the student’s involvement
