Dear Colleagues,

The Plant Genome Research Outreach Program at Cornell University and 
Boyce Thompson Institute is sponsoring summer internships in Ithaca, 
New York.  Internships are 8-10 weeks in length in one of 16 
participating labs currently doing plant genome research.  Areas of 
research include: water-use efficiency, genome evolution and 
organization, breeding for improved pest resistance, 
Arabidopsis-aphid interactions, heavy metal accumulation and 
tolerance, cell wall biosynthesis, plant resistance, and more. 

All incoming interns will be mentored by a graduate student or 
post-doctoral associate and will work with their mentors on a project 
related to plant genomics.  They will learn the latest in molecular 
biology techniques, and depending on the lab, may also participate in 
fieldwork.  All students will be attending a weekly seminar series 
featuring on-campus researchers, reading and discussing recent 
literature related to their project, and will present their research 
to the other students, principal investigators, and mentors at our 
annual Summer Student Symposium.  For participation in the program, 
student interns will be provided a stipend, housing, and some travel 
expenses.

Visit our website (http://outreach-pgrp.cornell.edu) for more 
information and to download an application.  Deadline for all 
application materials is February 23rd, 2004.

Please pass this information along to any interested undergraduates 
and for more information, contact the internship coordinator, Nicole 
Markelz (nph5 at cornell.edu).
