Does anyone have any thoughts on pre-M1 rotation given the strong potential the majority (if not all) may be online? I am also struggling to find a mentor who is taking on a rotation student during this. Should I choose a mentor I'm less interested in since I think it will be harder to get a sense of the lab environment and culture etc? Any thoughts?

if ur program allows it and compensates u during the time I would do a bioinformátics rotation for a project that could be done entirely at a distance. Make some money, pick up some valuable skills.

Lab wise I don’t think most will get much out of bench lab rotations rn unless ur somewhere with very few precautions.
