BSC2420L Biotechnology 1 Lab (AA)

Prerequisites: BSC1010, BSC1010L, BSC2421, BSC2421L, CHM1045, CHM1045L (with a grade of C or higher). Corequisites: BSC2420, CHM1046, CHM1046L (with a grade of C or higher).

This course provides a deep exploration of the basic foundations of molecular biotechnology with an emphasis on molecular biology and genomics, which include gene and genome structure and function. Students will explore methods of DNA and RNA extraction and quantification, as well as plasmid transformation, PCR, QPCR, cloning, DNA sequencing, plate-based assays, and various types of laboratory equipment and software. In a lecture science course where there is a required co-requisite lab, students may withdraw from the lab class, but stay in the lecture class. (Students may also choose to withdraw from both.) Students will not be allowed to withdraw from the lecture and remain enrolled in the lab.
