Participants in the Summer 2017 Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) will take advantage of high-throughput DNA sequencing and phylogenetic methods to study the identity and origins of Hawaiʻi’s native, endemic and invasive organisms. REU participants will be mentored by a diverse faculty from the departments of Biology, Botany, and Microbiology, the Hawai‘i Natural Energy Institute at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa, and Kapi‘olani Community College.
The 10-week REU summer program provides participants with stipends of $5,250, and covers the costs of accommodations, food and travel to the REU site. This unique experience allows participants to gain hands-on research experience, providing an excellent stepping stone for future graduate studies.
Applications for Summer 2017 are due February 1, 2017
