Requirements  
Grading Method Students are evaluated with respect to the abilities to propose a scientifically interesting hypothesis, to examine it appropriately by experiments, and to prepare research reports. 
Practical Experience  
Summary of Practical Experience and Class Contents based on it  
Message Students will perform research related to the following two projects.
1) Evolution of developmental genes after genome duplication (Making a hypothesis by in silico genome analysis, testing it by in vivo transgenic experiments, etc.)
2) Analysis of the roles for epigenetic regulation in Xenopus organ regeneration. 
Other   
Please fill in the class improvement questionnaire which is carried out on all classes.
Instructors will reflect on your feedback and utilize the information for improving their teaching.
