A practical introduction to experimentation in cell and molecular biology. Lab modules will introduce students to concepts and techniques in the general preparation of solutions and buffers, microbiology, molecular biology, biochemistry, microscopy and data manipulation and communication skills. This core laboratory course is the gateway for Cell & Molecular biology specialists to upper level laboratory offerings.
Priority will be given to students enrolled in the Specialist programs in Molecular Biology and Biotechnology (Co-op and non-Co-op), Biological Chemistry and the Major program in Biochemistry. Additional students will be admitted as space permits.
