MCDB 161L: Research Immersion in Molecular Biosciences
Offered: Summer Session A, June 20 – July 29, 2011
Developed as part of the $1,000,0000 UCSB-HHMI initiative, this is an intensive (6 unit) undergraduate laboratory course covering basic approaches to research in molecular biosciences using model systems. In addition to the laboratory techniques, students learn hypothesis building, experimental design, data analysis and interpretation, as well as presentation skills. The 6-week course (Summer Session A) is taught in three modules, each based on current interdisciplinary biomolecular and biomedical research being conducted on the UCSB campus. This is a unique opportunity for UCSB undergraduate students to obtain practical training that will help them prepare for careers in biomedical research.
