Certificate in Genetics - Honours Research and Thesis 1 MICI 4901   Honours Research and Thesis 1
MICI 4901 is followed by MICI 4902, both being required for completion of the Honours. While typically requiring original research conducted under the supervision of a faculty member, in the period of the pandemic and ahead, Honours can be conducted in 1 of 3 options: 1) If the student is permitted into the supervisor’s laboratory beginning with 4901, for both terms (e.g. 4902), the project should be original research conducted at the bench. 2) If the student is not in the laboratory or conducting in silico analyses for both 4901 and 4902, (for example, not on campus) a written project will be based on research of the literature on a problem related to the supervisor’s research, in consultation with the supervisor. 3) If the student is permitted into the laboratory in the (second, i.e. 4902) only, the project could be a “hybrid” of a literature review.
NOTES: This course must be taken consecutively with MICI 4902.03. No grade is provided until both MICI 4901.03 and MICI 4902.03 are completed.
