Depending on their preparation, incoming MCSB students will be given 1-2 week "bootcamps" in biology, mathematics and/or computation, during the period just prior to the start of the fall quarter. These intensive training experiences, which involve lectures, demonstrations, and one-on-one instruction, are designed to help students achieve a basic understanding in areas in which they may have received little formal education.

The Bootcamp concludes with a Student Research Article Symposium open to all faculty, researchers and students. In preparation, MCB students are assigned personal student tutors.
