Biology Research Seminar

A guided self-study around conceptual and analytical abilities as well as writing and reading that is necessary for the field of biology. 

In the sixth semester, you can choose to build on your reading and writing skills, and analytical and critical skills, both very critical for a study of Biology. We will survey key areas around memory, the human brain, evolution and intelligence, collective behaviour and disease ecology. We select these areas because of their critical and central place in the study in contemporary biology. You will hone your skills in reading and critiquing academic papers, analysing and synthesising a variety of research and text, and bringing theory into applications.
