Seminare Biotechnologie

Das Seminar findet Mittwochs um 12:00 Uhr im WS und um 10:30 Uhr im SS statt.

Suchen Sie sich ein Thema aus (Eigenrecherche oder aktuelle Seminarthemen) und kontaktieren Sie den entsprechenden Betreuer, um die Betreuung und einen potentiellen Seminartermin abzustimmen (siehe Seminarkalender; max. drei Vorträge pro Termin).

Danach bitte die Themenwahl und den freien Wunschtermin direkt unter demian.dietrich(at) mitteilen.

Planen Sie bitte rechtzeitig. Das Seminar findet nur im laufenden Semester statt.

Jedes Thema kann nur 1 mal vergeben werden.

Das dritte Seminar der Biotechnologen kann/soll der Vorbereitung der Masterarbeit dienen. Es geht dabei klar um eine intensive Vorbereitung durch Literaturstudium und soll keine erarbeiteten Ergebnisse enthalten.

Jeder Vortrag soll 20 min dauern. Danach folgen 10 min Diskussion und Kritik durch Studenten, Kollegen und Betreuer.

Für den Erhalt der entsprechenden Credit Points ist die Anwesenheit verpflichtend.

1. und 2. Seminarvortrag: Der Vortrag inklusive einer detaillierten Liste der verwendeten Literatur, sowie eine zusammenfassende Ausarbeitung (max. 3 Seiten) müssen dem Betreuer und Herrn Dietrich als pdf-Datei am Tag des Vortrags zugesendet werden. Die Ausarbeitung und der Vortrag werden anschließend im Seminarkalender hochgeladen.

Masterseminar: Die Anwesenheit des Betreuers der Masterarbeit ist verpflichtend. Im Fall des Masterseminars muss keine zusammenfassende Ausarbeitung abgegeben werden.
