Default Plant Genomics Internships

Plant Genomics Undergraduate Internships at University of
Missouri-Columbia PGI @ MU
Sponsored by the National Science Foundation

Program Details
* Eight-week summer program (June 4 - July 30, 2005)
* $2800 stipend, one hour of research credit
* Room (double) and board provided on-campus in air-conditioned dormitories
* Travel expenses to and from Columbia provided
* Travel money available to present research at a scientific meeting

Plant Genomics at Missouri
The University of Missouri-Columbia (MU) is a nationally recognized
center for plant genetics research and has received multiple grants
from the National Science Foundation to fund research in plant
structural and functional genomics. Faculty in biological sciences,
biochemistry, plant sciences/agronomy, and the USDA/ARS are eager to
provide training opportunities for undergraduates who wish to
participate in collaborative research. Research problems 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, functional analysis, and

PGI @ MU Summer Internship Activities
Undergraduates will be selected to spend eight weeks working on an
individual plant genomics research project under the guidance of an
MU faculty mentor. Each week, interns will attend brown bag lunches
and evening seminars to discuss their projects and learn about issues
related to research and careers in science. Specific activies with
plant genomics focus will include: a biweekly journal club and a
day-trip to one of the plant science centers in St. Louis. At the end
of the summer, PGI @ MU interns will join over 90 other summer
interns to present their results at a poster symposium. Regular
social activities will provide opportunities for students to get to
know each other and other members of the MU science community.

The Campus and Community
MU, the flagship campus of the University of Missouri system is home
to 23,000 students and 1,400 faculty. Columbia is located midway
between St. Louis and Kansas City and combines the benefits of larger
cities-a wide array of dining, art, theater, music, and worship
opportunities-with the convenience of a small college town.

Students must be citizens or permanent residents of the U.S. and
entering their sophomore, junior or senior year in college, majoring
in biology, biochemistry, plant science or a related field and
intending to pursue graduate work in one of the life sciences.
Preference will be given to students enrolled at universities other
than MU. Ten internships are available.

Application Deadline and Selection Process
Deadline for application is February 10, 2005. Applications will be
screened as received, and students will be notified of acceptance to
the program no later than the third week of March. Interns will be
matched with mentors based on research interests / preferences
provided in the application.
