'Expression of Esrp1 and Esrp2 during embryonic development' Undergraduate Research Project Application Form.

INSTRUCTIONS - PROFESSORS: Fill out Sections A & B then submit this form online. (You will receive an email copy of the form. The Office for Undergraduate Research in Science will also post the project online, indicating whether the project is open for students to apply or taken.) DONE

INSTRUCTIONS - STUDENTS: You may receive this form by email, or you may download it after it has been posted. Either way, print this form. Complete and sign Section C on the hardcopy. Ask your supervisor to sign Section D. Take it to the department corresponding to the course number in Section A (this may or may not be your own department). Do not register for a '396' course on Minerva until you receive departmental permission. Have a discussion with your supervisor about time/work expectations, keeping in mind that this is a 3-credit course (roughly, 10 hours per week for 12 weeks). Remember that a '396' course is an elective.

INSTRUCTIONS - DEPARTMENTS: After the unit chair/director/designate approves (or not) this project, notify student. If approved, please give student permission to register on Minerva, and fax this form (with signatures) to the Office for Undergraduate Research in Science.

Project title: Expression of Esrp1 and Esrp2 during embryonic development

Project description: The student will participate in the characterization of the expression of two splicing factors, Esrp1 and Esrp2, during early mouse embryogenesis. In order to do this, the intern will produce labeled RNA probes to perform in situ hybridizations on sections of mouse embryos.

Prerequisite: 1 term completed at McGill + CGPA of 3.0 or higher; or permission of instructor.

Other prerequisite, if applicable:

Grading scheme (The final report must be worth at least 50% of final grade): Report 50%, Lab participation 40%, lab meeting presentations 10%
