BIOL 4554

MOL BIO EUKARYOTES - DNA

(lab required) A techniques intensive course focusing on the understanding of molecular biology techniques, troubleshooting problems, writing reproducible laboratory experiments for publications, accurate recording of procedures in lab journals, and bioinformatics exercises from a DNA perspective. This course is designed for 4th year undergraduate and graduate students interested in understanding the theory and application of molecular methods specifically focusing on eukaryotic DNA. Students will learn essential and cutting-edge molecular biology techniques involved in gene structure, amplification, transformation, and sequencing among others. This course may not be held for credit with BIOL 4552. Prerequisite: BIOL 2520
