This course is designed to provide an introductory experience to conducting experiments in a biochemistry laboratory. The course covers a broad spectrum of modern techniques and their underlying physical, chemical and biological principles. Biochemical tools and concepts are at the core of recent advances in medical/veterinary, forensic and food/agricultural sciences that have improved our lives. The main objectives of this course are for students to: become familiar with methods and instruments used in biochemistry laboratories, relate these basic biochemistry skills to a chosen field of study/interest, learn how to collect, record and analyze experimental data, present results clearly in graphic, tabular, and written formats, and perform experiments in an environment requiring teamwork. Open to ANIMLSCI, PRE-VET, HUMNUT, NUTRITN, FOODSCI seniors
