    Minimum time commitment in hours per week: 3

    Qualifications of a Student:
    Any student interested in perusing a degree in a biology-related field.

    Brief Summary of what is expected from the student:
    The student will be expected to work ~10 hrs a week. An early emphasis will be on genomic DNA isolation from mouse tissue and subsequent PCR(Polymerase Chain Reaction) to aid in the maintenance of the transgenic mouse colony. A chance for further study may include protein isolation, RNA isolation and tissue culture maintenance.
    As an undergrad some common lab duties would be required such as buffer and reagent creation as well as cleaning and lab upkeep. Overall an excellent chance to work in, and observe how a modern molecular biology lab operates at the university level.
