The Biotechnology Training Program elective requirement is described in detail on the Program Requirements page

The following is a non-comprehensive list of courses that are available to BTP trainees and which satisfy the Elective course requirement. This list is updated periodically, and there are certainly other courses (potentially new courses) which could also satisfy the Elective requirement. Trainees are encouraged to discuss potential course choices with BTP leadership.
