UCLA Undergraduate Genomics Research Initiative (UGRI)
UCLA Undergraduate Genomics Research Initiative (UGRI) is an initiative where students learn about cutting-edge research in genomic biology and biotechnology by experiencing it. The UGRI is not a course; it's a collaboration. Students in different undergraduate courses - from science general education to upper division life sciences - participate and learn while building a major research accomplishment: the sequencing of the genome of the bacterium Ammonifex degensii.
