Description: The Biosciences Honors Research Program offers our seniors and advanced juniors the opportunity to perform a two-semester, individual research project in a research laboratory in Biosciences or an approved off-campus site and offers opportunities for students to develop their written and oral scientific communication skills. Students registering for BIOS 401 are expected to take BIOS 402 the following semester. Each semester, students are expected to average 15 hours per week in research (laboratory) and communication skills activities (scheduled through the companion seminar co-requisite). In BIOS 402, students will continue their research, prepare regular progress reports, attend lab meetings, write a final research summary document, and present a poster at the Rice Undergraduate Research Symposium. Must register for co-requisite BIOS 412.
