Topics covered include (1). laboratory health and safety, (2) laboratory calculations, (3) experimental design and statistical analysis, (3) microbial and mammalian cell culture, and (4) recombinant DNA work and quantitative PCR analysis.
MICR 462 is 100% internally assessed. In 2013 there will be three assessment items:
- Core skills modules: 20%
- Research project-related essay (a critical review of the relevant literature): 40%
- Interpretive exam: 30%
- Laboratory notebook (pass/fail): 10%
