【More Details】
Lecturers who are actually conducting research using each model organism explain the features and application methods of each model organism. Lecturers distribute handouts as necessary, and we may impose quizzes and/or report preparation. Because this lecture subject will be able to facilitate your own research, we recommend taking this lecture in the first year of master course.
