Insect Genetic Technologies Research Coordination Network -

Insect Genetic Technologies Research Coordination Network is a 5-year National Science Foundation - funded project that began in April 2014 whose object is to facilitate advances in functional genomics by leveraging dispersed expertise with the broad community of insect scientists.Many insect biologist have or will soon have an abundance of genome sequence data but few tools for probing function.  The IGTRCN intends to address that problem directly in a number of ways including seminars,…

Core courses and Insect Physiology

Dear Colleague,I respectfully request your input.The curriculum committee of our entomology department is preparing to review how we teach courses for grad students.  I would like to know what other units do.  For example:Do you require a core of courses— if yes, what are they? Are the courses for MS and PhD students?  Are grad students required to pass prelim exams in disciplinary areas of entomology (whether or not you have a core)?  If core courses are taught, are they a semester long?  Is…
