Good luck on exams !
When you have a chance to think about the fall 2012 schedule, look over
the BINF and BIOL listings to see what is available. You are able
to register for classes now. If you plan to register for BIOL 563
Virology, BIOL 691 Cell-Based Assays or BIOL 690
Intro to Grad
Studies this fall term, email the
course instructor and request a course override.
Click on the envelope icon next to the professor's name listed in the
schedule of classes on Patriot Web. Include your GMU ID number in your
email request. Please see the attached instructions about course
A reminder that we offer at least one section of BIOL 695 / BIOS
704 seminar each spring and fall semester.
You may be interested in BINF 636, "Microarray Methods/Analysis"
as an elective. It is appropriate for students interested in
Proteomics, Functional Genomics and Molecular biotechnology. The course
description may be found on http://binf.gmu.edu/courses.html
Dr. Dmitri Klimov is offering a Bioinformatics course that will
substitute for the BIOL 580/BINF 630 requirement for molecular
concentration in the MS Biology program. It is also BIOL 691,
"Molecular Modeling for Biology", 3 credits. Dr. Klimov notes that
bioinformatics background is not needed for this course.
If you plan to register for BIOL 798
Project or BIOL 799 Thesis credits for
the first time in the fall 2012 semester, you will
need to have your "Committee Formation" form AND the
"Proposal Approval" form signed
and sent to me asap. I will get the dept. approval signatures on the
forms, and then send you the CRN to register with. Get a jump start on
spring 2013 by forming your Master's thesis or project committee in
fall 2012 !
BIOL 693 Directed Studies form is found on
http://mmb.gmu.edu/index.php?content=147#146 under "MS Biology".
Please fill in the details in consultation with
your professor and send it along to me for registration. This is a good
way to work on your thesis proposal while you are forming your
committee or narrowing down your thesis or project topic. It is
normally from one to three credits.
Any questions let me know.
