BIOENG-602 / 1 credit
Teacher: Manley Suliana
Remark: Meeting times will be determined according to the professor and participants availabilities.
Before you step into the lab to do an experiment, you have a long list of questions: How do I design an experiment that will give a clear answer to my question? What model system should I use? What are my controls? What's an ideal sample size? How can I tell if the experiment worked?
The course entails a small group of students watching the on-line videos made by scientists, then doing written exercises, and finally discussing these exercises and videos with the course moderator. There will also be a final independent project. It should take ~3 hrs per week for 7 weeks, plus 7 hours to prepare the project.
Evaluation will be comprised of exercises, class participation, and a final project. Attendance to all sessions is mandatory.
There is very limited space: To sign up for the course please send firstname.lastname@example.org a brief (<1/2 page) justification for why you want to take the course. Please include your matriculation date. The course is aimed at students who are in the early stages of their PhD.
IMPORTANT: Once you have been approved by the course professor, the EDBB administrator will sign you up for the course in your student portal. Do not sign yourself up
