Once again the University of Missouri-Columbia will be holding an 
NSF-funded summer research internship program for TEN undergraduates 
in the area of plant genomics.

The application deadline for students is Tuesday, February 10, 2004.

More information and applications can be found at:  

Research areas include: genome organization, gene expression, signal 
transduction, hormone action, organelle biochemistry, disease 
resistance, and crop plant productivity. Genomics approaches to 
understanding these problems include: genetic and physical mapping, 
multiple methods for functional analysis, and bioinformatics. 
Eighteen faculty members serve as mentors.

The 8-week program provides a stipend, room & board, transportation 
to Columbia, and other benefits. Students are part of a larger 
undergraduate research community (numbering over 70) and will attend 
evening seminars, brown bag lunches, speciality discussions, and 
field trips.  Topics will include career opportunities, scientific 
ethics, communicating science, and research discoveries.  Field trips 
to the Danforth Plant Sciences Center and Monsanto in St. Louis are 
planned.  The program concludes with a poster symposium and luncheon.

Please pass this information along to undergraduates.  Questions can 
be directed to Dr. Linda Blockus (BlockusL at missouri.edu, 
573-882-5979) or Dr. Karen Cone (ConeK at missouri.edu).
