Outcomes
  • To expose students to realistic scientific questions and encourage critical thinking, teach how to design hypothesis-based experiments, choose appropriate statistical test(s), analyze data, and interpret results.
  • To fill students' scientific "tool box" by demonstrating mastery of modern lab techniques and scientific methods that can later be applied across varied biological systems and scales.
  • To teach students how to find relevant scientific information using appropriate library tools, and to communicate effectively using both written and oral formats.
  • To teach students how to think through a scientific process with their research group while acquiring conceptual knowledge and understanding the benefits and challenges of collaborative work.
  • To teach how to use discovery science to explore patterns in nature, and understand the importance of accuracy and precision.
  • To provide students with the opportunity to learn and apply fundamental biological information in the context of the course modules.
