Biochemistry Laboratory II
This is a project-style course focussing on recombinant DNA techniques, building upon the fundamental laboratory techniques acquired in earlier courses. Students gain hands-on experience in experimental design and data analysis, exploring numerous classic and modern experimental techniques used in biochemistry research laboratories.
This course is restricted to Biochemistry Specialist students.
