Description

While many biology courses explain the foundations of the subject in a textbook fashion, students are often not exposed to techniques used in modern biomedical research. This condensed 10-day program introduces common techniques and practices used in biomedical research through a multiple day hands-on lab experiment. Students learn to pipette, count cells, run a PCR (polymerase chain reaction), and perform other important skills as they investigate the genomes of yeast cells.
