Laboratory Investigations in Cell and Molecular Biology
Explore the mechanisms of life on a sub-cellular scale
Laboratory Investigations in Cell and Molecular Biology features 21 introductory lab procedures for undergraduate biology majors. Designed to be completed with minimal equipment and preparation time, these labs are suitable for demonstrations as well as laboratory coursework. Simple biochemistry protocols give way to more focused organelle study, and eventually to more advanced molecular biology procedures including restriction mapping techniques. Students learn basic assays, data analysis, and good laboratory practices while gaining a deeper understanding of life at the molecular level.
