Course description and aims

Bachelor's thesis research is the culmination of undergraduate education. The L1 seminar of Biological Sciences course serves as a prelude to starting work on bachelor's thesis research, in which each student reaffirms their research interests, with the primary goal of providing information on joining a laboratory. The instructors will teach students how to explore research topics, experiment design, and how to evaluate their findings by introducing students the research of each instructor. In addition, the instructor will motivate students to pursue truth through research and to contribute to society through life science.

Student learning outcomes

By the course, students will acquire the following knowledge:
1) Research interests of each instructor
2) How to create a novel research topic
3) Designing a research process
4) Trends in fields related to life sciences
5) Evaluation of experimental results
