MOL 350 Laboratory in Molecular Biology
The major objective of the course is to introduce students to a variety of tools required to conduct independent research in the field of molecular biology. While completing original research, students will employ a number of techniques that are used by molecular biologists, molecular geneticists, and biochemists. Upon completion of the course, students should have gained an understanding of how, when and why certain techniques and skills are used in a research setting. In addition, students will learn to write a research report modeled on the scientific literature.
Prerequisites: MOL 342 (or permission). This course is required for Molecular Biology Majors.
