Please register for the bioinformatics project in the next semester. There is no provision for dividing parts of it into this semester and the next one.
You should, however, start looking for a suitable topic this semester. The project must have some bioinformatics elements in it. Take some time to talk to a few lecturers about potential projects, or propose one if you have something in mind. At least one of the supervisor must be from UM (not necessarily from Bioinformatics, though).
A suitable project is one that you can complete in time. It is helpful to begin some ground work, like reading the relevant literature and getting a good idea of what you need to do for the project, starting from now. Some projects require you to learn new programming languages, new softwares, operate in a different computer OS, or sharpen your existing computing skills. All these things take time.
Once you have identified a project, please submit the abstract to me using the form that I have given out. Technically, you can pass this to me latest by the second week of next semester. Earlier is fine.
