Molecular and Cell Biology Laboratory

PREREQUISITES: BIOL-UA 11 AND 12 OR BIOL-UA 13 AND BIOL-UA 14. CO-REQUISITE: BIOL-UA 21 MOLECULAR AND CELL BIOLOGY I.

BIOL-UA 223 Molecular and Cell Biology Laboratory 1 point, Lab. Prerequisites: Principles of Biology I and II (BIOL-UA 11 and 12). Co-requisite: BIOL-UA 21 Molecular and Cell Biology I. First offered in fall 2013 and offered every fall semester thereafter. This laboratory course applies concepts learned in the Molecular and Cell Biology course (BIOL-UA 21) to a molecular biology research project. The research project will introduce students to standard genetic and biochemical techniques common in a molecular biology lab, such as DNA isolation, agarose-gel electrophoresis, and transformation. The project also will provide students with a hands-on understanding of how modern DNA-sequencing technology, along with bioinformatic tools, can be used to discover genetic differences and understand cellular function. --
