BIOLĀ 124L. Intro Biol Experimentation II. (2).

This course exposes students to the processes of investigative biology and communication. This laboratory course is not designed to accompany any particular core lecture course, and will introduce a variety of subjects including including virology, gene expression, gene sequence analysis, gene manipulation and bioinformatics. The course may emphasize experimental design, data collection, statistical analysis, the integration of results with information reported in the literature and the effective communication of conclusions. In line with the philosophy of our inquiry-based curriculum, Biology 124 culminates in an independent project module, where students design and conduct their own experiments, analyze data (statistically, where appropriate) and present their results in both written and oral communications. Evaluation is based on short lab assignments and scientific papers; students will plan an oral presentation of their independent project. There are no prerequisites.(Offered Spring semester).
