|Certificates: Informatics and Modeling|
This course is designed to familiarize students with current research techniques in molecular biology, biochemistry, and genetics. A variety of methods and approaches will be applied in a series of short projects, primarily using E. coli and Saccharomyces cerevisiae (budding yeast) as model systems. Students will gain hands-on experience employing recombinant DNA, microbiology, protein biochemistry, and other methods to answer basic research questions. This course provides excellent preparation for students planning to conduct independent research at the undergraduate level (MB&B401/402) and beyond.
Designing, Creating, and Realizing, Quantitative Reasoning
Students in this course actively participate in the development of an experimental plan, the execution of a series of experiments, and the interpretation of the data they produce.
