A bit of a multi-step plan:

1 * See work of past and present students, and what it's like to be in the lab

Note that many of the students are joint students & come from a variety of tracks.

2 * Next, glance at papers

3 * Drill into some very easy-to-read papers

in particular,

  1. simulations:
  2. genomics:
  3. proteomics:

4 * You might want to look at our research summary and some press write-ups as well.

Flipping through a few lectures is also easy.

5 * The above steps (1 to 4), give you some context. Now if you're interested, you might want to talk to current senior PhD students and postdocs in the lab, who could potentially be mentors for a initial project

(These can often be listed by their initials -- e.g. JR = Joel Rozowsky or CC = Chao Cheng.)

You might want to contact these people with a CC back to Mark.

6 * Finally, write back to Mark with some summary thoughts on the above, and then arrange a meeting.

(You might be interested in attending the regular meetings scheduled in the lab (ie gpmtg, esp., or the all-hands P1)

7 * Any arrangement is possible. The only rule is don't be a *FLAKE*.
