7.02 and 7.021 require simultaneous registration. Application of experimental techniques in biochemistry, microbiology, and cell biology. Emphasizes integrating factual knowledge with understanding the design of experiments and data analysis to prepare the students for research projects. Concurrent registration with 7.03 or 7.05 is recommended. 12 units may be applied to the General Institute Laboratory Requirement. Instruction and practice in written communication provided. From the course home page: Course Description 7.02 is a laboratory course introducing you to experimental techniques in microbiology, biochemistry, and cell biology. 7.02 emphasizes integrating factual knowledge with understanding the design of experiments and data analysis. The course is divided into four modules: Genetics (GEN) Protein Biochemistry (PBC) Recombinant DNA Methods (RDM) Development (DEV) Each model introduces different experimental techniques and approaches. Although the techniques used in these modules may appear different, many of the underlying theoretical concepts are similar. The skills you learn in 7.02 will be very important should you later enter any research environment, or go on to graduate or medical school.
