Project title: Expression analysis of esrp1 splicing targets during embryogenesis
Project description (50-100 words suggested): Epithelial splicing regulatory protein (ESRP1) has been found to regulate the expression of exons during embryogenesis. The goal of this project is to use in situ hybridization to examine the expression pattern of exons that are regulated by ESRP1 during mouse embryogenesis.
Prerequisite: 1 term completed at McGill + CGPA of 3.0 or higher; or permission of instructor.
Grading scheme (The final report must be worth at least 50% of final grade): Final grade shall be based on an evaluation of laboratory (or equivalent) performance (40%), a final written report (50%), and an oral presentation (10%) by the supervisor. Details of the evaluation scheme will be provided by HGEN to supervisors and applicants.
Project status: This project is taken. The professor has no more '396' projects this term.
How students can apply: For HGEN: After all of the parts of this application forms are completed and the hard copy is signed by the professor and the student, bring the application form and a copy of your unofficial transcript to the Department of Human Genetics (to the attention of Dr. Patricia N. Tonin, Stewart Biology Building N5.13) during office hours.
Ethics, safety, and training: Supervisors are responsible for the ethics and safety compliance of undergraduate students. This project involves animal subjects.
