Introduction to Molecular and Cellular Biology - Laboratory

This lab course supplements "Introduction to Molecular and Cellular Biology." Although it does not replicate a true lab experience, it does enable further exploration of some key principles of molecular and cellular biology. In each unit, the student will work through tutorials related to important scientific concepts, and then will be asked to think creatively about how those concepts can be put to practical or experimental use. This lab course also contains activities devoted to learning important techniques in scientific study such as microscope use, DNA extraction, Polymerase Chain Reaction, and examination of DNA microarrays. This free course may be completed online at any time. See course site for detailed overview and learning outcomes. (Biology 101 Laboratory)
