Subject: 2016 Summer Program in Computational Biology at Rutgers' University

Rutgers University’s Computational Biology Summer Program provides
meaningful summer research experiences to ten undergraduate students and
combines experimental, theoretical, and computational approaches with a focus
on the intersection of the mathematical, computational, and biological
sciences. In addition to the research experience, students receive
computational biology training, professional skills development, and
enrichment sessions geared towards broadening their understanding of the
application of, and issues surrounding, scientific research. Faculty and
postgraduate mentors guide the research projects and advise students toward
further study and career development.

The central theme linking research projects will be the modeling of
biological systems — ecological, physiological, and molecular. Each project
will start from generally-stated scientific questions and faculty mentors
will guide students to critically examine the question (providing them with
foundational knowledge and skills as needed), formulate hypotheses, design
experiments, and interpret results for the verification of the hypotheses and
the formulation of valid alternatives when possible.

The Computational Biology Summer Program accepts ten students each year. Each
student will receive room and board plus a $5,000 stipend. Applicants must be
enrolled in a post-secondary program of education, maintain a cumulative 3.0
GPA, and have completed at least one undergraduate science course. Veterans
are encouraged to apply.
