Abstract: This paper considers curves in Grassmannians which are themselves immersed in projective space by the Plücker map. It is shown that for a generic vector bundle of high enough degree, the image curve lies in a proper linear subvariety of this projective space and satisfies good conditions on syzygies as a curve in this subspace. For very small degree and generic vector bundle, the curve is non-degenerate.
