BIOL 4556

MOL BIO EUKARYOTES - RNA

(lab required) This is a “hands-on” techniques course designed for the 3rd and 4th year undergraduate level. The purpose of this course is to train students in the current molecular biology techniques dealing with highly sensitive RNA molecules. The students will learn all essential steps involved to identify the messenger RNA expression of a particular target protein in plant or animal (invertebrates) systems. This course may not be held for credit with BIOL 4552. Prerequisite: BIOL 2520.
