Description:
Tuskegee University IBS-REU site offers undergraduates (rising juniors and seniors in the STEM majors, but particularly in Biology, Chemistry, Animal Sciences, Plant and Soil Sciences, Agricultural Economics, and other bioscience majors) a novel approach to conduct research by integrating multiple areas in the biosciences. We define "integrative biosciences" research as any research where the continued integration of two or more science disciplines is requisite, for example, determining the consequences of genetically-modified sweetpotato (Plant Genomics, Plant Sciences) on soil microbial biodiversity (Soil Science, Soil Microbiology, Genetics).

SUPPORT: Participants will receive a $5,000 stipend for the ten-week program, housing in dormitories on the Tuskegee University campus, a complete meal plan, and assistance with travel to and from Tuskegee University.

ELIGIBILITY: The NSF-supported IBS REU participants must be current undergraduate students (enrolled in a degree program part-time or full-time leading to a baccalaureate or associate degree and returning to an undergraduate program in the academic year following the REU experience).
