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, data analysis, and science communication. This core laboratory course is the gateway for Molecular Biology & Biotechnology 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, Neuroscience (Stage 1, Co-op only), Neuroscience (Cellular/Molecular Stream), and the Major program in Biochemistry. Additional students will be admitted as space permits.
