BIOL 602 - Research Design and Methods

Fall Credits: (1-3) Leu and Shakes.

This three module course complements BIOL 601 by focusing on techniques and skills that will facilitate successful thesis research. All students take the initial half-semester module which focuses on best practices for statistically robust experimental design (replication, sample size, data independence). The other two modules are offered during the second half of the semester. The quantitative module covers data exploration and data management, and introduces students to statistical analyses in Research. The molecular module covers principles and pitfalls of cell and molecular techniques that are directly relevant to the students enrolled.
