BIOL 450L - Biotechnology

Description
An intensive laboratory course covering both basic and advanced techniques in biotechnology. Subcloning, gel electrophoresis, and polymerase chain reaction (PCR) will be emphasized. Other techniques will be covered, such as sequencing, DNA and protein blotting, protein isolation, and bioinformatics. Students will apply their skill to a group project. Students will also learn how to find employment or graduate programs in molecular biology. The hands-on advanced nature of this course demands a substantial time commitment outside of normal lecture/lab hours. Three-hour lecture, three-hour laboratory per week. Prerequisites: CHEM 211-212 and CHEM 215-216 or CHEM 201-202, and grade of C or higher in BIOL 130 and 131
