In 2012/13 there are about 90 graduate students registered in the Department of Biology, 50 in the MSc program and 40 in the PhD program. Every professor in the department supervises graduate students, and the average is about 4 per lab (professor).
See the left hand sidebar for links to forms and other information relevant to grad student life and activities.
Recent (2012) changes to our Guide to Graduate Studies:
6.2.(f) Supervisors have the right to write up and take first authorship on papers based on any material in the thesis or arising from the thesis that is not submitted for publication within one year of normal degree time limits (2 years for MSc, 4 for PhD). Since the student will be co-author on such papers, such thesis material may be used directly without infringing on the student's copyright.
