Minor & Major

  • You need a minor and major internship for your Bioinformatics and Systems Biology MSc degree
  • 10 months (60 ects) total of internships
  • minimum 3 months (18 ects)
  • Minor and Major must be in a different research group and on a different topic
  • Sufficient algorithmic and biological content, as determined by your IBIVU supervisor
  • You cannot start your internship before you have passed your deficiency modules (biology or programming for Bioinformatics and biology or calculus for Systems Biology)

Todo list for your Internship

Choosing your topic/place:

Before you start:

During the project

  • Contact your 'daily' supervisor at least once a week
  • Contact your supervisor every month
    • report progress
    • indicate problems
    • indicate when you think to finish
    • indicate any changes to the Project Plan
  • Your daily supervisor should contact your supervisor at start and end of the project, and at least every other month.
  • We strongly encourage you to give a mid-term presentation during your project. If this is not possible at your placement, you can always give a talk at the IBIVU, please contact Ilse Thomson for an appointment. You could present:
    • your approach
    • preliminary results
    • any problems

Finishing your project

  • Final Presentation always (also) at the IBIVU
    • Get approvement from your supervisor(s) to give your presentation (you should hand in a draft version of your thesis 1 week prior to your presentation)
    • Make an appointment
    • You may want to ask for some feedback on your slides, before you give the final presentation.
  • Project Thesis
    • your code needs to be included (as appendix or electronically)
  • Get the Master Project Evaluation Form completed by your supervisors
    • Grades are awarded by your IBIVU supervisor; daily supervisor makes a suggestion
    • Final grade is based on work (1/2), thesis (1/3) and presentation (1/6)
    • Your thesis and a copy of the evaluation form go in the IBIVU thesis archive
    • The grades for your internships must be recorded on a 'Registratieformulier AFSTUDEERSCRIPTIE'. One copy (yellow) of the form goes in our archive, one (white) you must deliver to the Onderwijsburo, and the third (pink) goes home with you.
