Microbiology Laboratory


After introducing students to the basics of bacterial growth and maintenance, this laboratory class employs microscopy, genetics, cell biology, and genomics to explore various aspects of bacterial physiology, structure, and identification. Students will present finding throughout the semester in both written and oral format. Roughly one hour lecture and five hours of laboratory per week. Fulfills the upper-level laboratory requirement for the Biology major. Prerequisite: Bio 2970, Bio 349 recommended, but not required. Enrollment limit is set at zero, and students are enrolled from the waitlist. Graduating seniors who need an upper-level laboratory to complete requirements of a biology major program have priority.
