Biology Lab

Scientific research is an organized system of inquiry that allows the researcher to make the best possible estimate of how natural processes work. The purpose of the laboratory part of Biology is to give you hands-on experience with scientific investigation and introduce you to some of the tools of Molecular and Cellular Biology. All laboratory experiments are performed here in groups of 2 or 4.The purpose of group work is to learn to work in a collaborative setting as you perform complex experiments.The microorganisms used in this course are of little or no risk to healthy people working with them, provided standard microbiological practices are followed.
