Goals of the Course: The primary objective of this course is to introduce students to the basic techniques applied in the typical Molecular / Microbial Laboratory. To achieve this goal, students will be given hands-on experience in performing “wet lab” practices, employing a variety of standard techniques. Informational lectures will be provided, where needed, to cover the scientific background behind the techniques as well as other more advanced techniques. Students will be expected to maintain an legible and well organized notebook of their activities.

  

Grading Policy: Attendance (50%)
  Project Presentation/Report (50%)
     

 

Attendance: Students will be expected to attend ALL classes at the scheduled time. Owing to the nature of the course, however, some laboratory activities may extend beyond the assigned time. On these occasions, students who need to leave early should talk to the instructor in advance. A formal letter or document is required for any and all health- or duty- related absences. All other absences must be agreed to with the instructor in advance.  Failure to attend two or more class days will forfeit ALL points given for attendance.

Project Presentation: Students will be trained how to work independently in the laboratory setting, but on occasion will be assigned into groups. Each individual/group must finish the various projects assigned to them by the instructor. At the end of the minimester each student will also present the lab notebook for evaluation. 

Ethical considerations: Unless otherwise stated, all examination answers that are submitted for evaluation are considered to be the sole property and ideas of each individual student. Any student(s) caught copying or cheating will automatically receive zero credit for that particular submission, and possibly be subject to further disciplinary action. 

Be aware of Plagiarism. All students should be aware of the academic honesty policy (http://deanofstudents.gsu.edu/faculty-staff-resources/academic-honesty/ ).
