BIOL 235 Experimental Methods in Biology (2)
Through a series of interactive, hands-on experiences and assignments, students will gain exposure to a variety of model systems and methods of biological observation at multiple scales of organization (biological molecules, cells, organisms, populations, ecosystems, etc.). Students will practice and develop sophistication with the collection of data using a variety of techniques, approaches, and instrumentation. The specific techniques and approaches will vary from semester to semester, but may include techniques in Microscopy, Molecular Biology, Physiology, Field Studies, Biochemistry, Bioinformatics, Statistical Analysis, etc. Emphasis is placed on gaining proficiency in the safe and appropriate use of biological equipment and experimental techniques, keeping detailed laboratory notebooks, and communication of data in informative, accessible, and visually appealing ways.
