Primary Instructor:

This laboratory course encompasses a broad spectrum of common methods and theory essential to Cellular and Molecular Biology concentrations. The 90-minute lecture each week is used to introduce methodology and techniques that will be encountered in the lab. Two weekly lab sessions are arranged in a project-based format. The projects include several kinds of microscopy, cellular organelle isolation, gel electrophoresis, Western blotting, column chromatography, and tissue culture, in addition to molecular biology methods such as plasmid construction, transfection, polymerase chain reaction, and Southern blotting.

Grades are based on two exams, laboratory quizzes, and a term-long grant proposal project that may be completed individually or in a self-organized group. This course can be used to satisfy requirements for the Cell and Molecular Biology Concentration and the Biology Concentration.

Textbooks: Laboratory DNA Science, M.V. Bloom, et al.
Preferred: Molecular Cell Biology, H. Lodish, et al.
