Founded in Spring 2021, the Computational Biology Division of the Undergraduate Lab at Berkeley, aims to give interested undergraduates a chance to conduct their own research projects in Computational Biology in small groups under the guidance of experienced undergraduate mentors. Along the way they will gain fundamental research skills, explore relevant background knowledge, and gain experience in the research process. Our goal is to help students feel confident and prepared to seek out on-campus opportunities in the exciting field of computational biology.
The lab will meet as a DeCal over the course of one semester. Students will spend class time learning background information and meeting with their groups to work on their project. Mentors will supervise groups of 4-6 students, and guide them through the process of exploring a research question. The DeCal will conclude with a final project presentation. See the course syllabus here, and our decal page here!
Unfortunately, our applications for this semester have closed. We will be posting our course materials below throughout the course, so feel free to follow along!
