Welcome to the Biotechniques.org web-site of the graduate program of the Department of Biological Sciences at Fordham University. The graduate program at Fordham is designed to provide the students with an informative and intense course of study that yields graduates with extensive experience and knowledge in the most advanced research techniques. This training has allowed our students to address important questions of interest and, upon graduation, obtain the job they seek. A recent graduate was selected from amongst 200 applicants for a position in a New Jersey based pharmaceutical company. The training of our students begins on the first day of class and by the middle of the second semester, the students are well-versed in many of the latest technologies. To make the theoretical knowledge real and applicable, the department offers in the spring semester a course entitled "Techniques in Molecular Biology". In this course, following a seven-week training period, the students are required to select a scientific question of interest and address this question using the techniques learned. At the end of the semester, the students present their work at a departmental poster session and post their data as well as their papers on this web site. The data you can view on this web-site was generated primarily by first-year students and represents the diversity of their interests.

Feel free to examine the students' postings. If you have any comments or questions regarding the data presented, please contact the students via e-mail. Their e-mail addresses are obtained by clicking on their names beneath their pictures. If you have any questions regarding the Techniques in Molecular Biology course or the graduate program in the Department of Biological Sciences, feel free to contact me via e-mail.

I would like to thank the students enrolled in this course for their efforts in making the course and the web site a success. Special thanks go to Rocco Coli, Ira Daly and Sabrina Volpi who patiently helped train the students during this course.

Finally, thank you for coming to visit our web site.
