Open Applications

You provide the project, we provide the equipment!

The BioSeq Open Opplication gives students and teachrs the chance to perform their own sequencing research. Designed to mimic the grant proposal process, the open application gives students, groups, or calsses the opportunity to design and run their own experiments with feedback throughout.

Interested students should begin planning their project by deciding on a topic an doing some background research to narrow down their hypothesis and methods. Once they have that, students can write and submit a project proposal (guidelines and an example in the sidebar). We'll review the proposal and provide feedback -- and once the project is ready students can collect their materials and get started.
