  1. Other information for the written examination: Two questions from total six given questions (four from Biology and two from related sciences) will have to be selected and answered. The 3rd question will be essay-type, focusing on your proposed research plan, which will have to cover at least the following items: 1) research background, 2) method to approach the problem or methodology, and 3) expected outcome.
