About the Course:

This course is intended to provide an introduction to laboratory-based molecular biology. UC Berkeley is one the finest research institutions in the world - especially in the realm of biology; therefore, science majors here have the ability to partake in ground-breaking research with world-renowned faculty. However, if accepted into a resesarch lab, there is a certain amount of information you’re expected to have learned; this information is not explicitly taught in any lower division course, and synthesizing it on your own can be daunting and difficult.

This course is intended to bridge this gap; we will be providing an insight into the basic techniques that will be utilized in any molecular biology lab. Of course, going over every possible laboratory mechanism is impossible; for this reason, we’ll be discussing techniques that are the most common and often assigned to undergraduates when they first join a laboratory. This will facilitate your transition into the laboratory and also help you make the most of your research experience. The instruction will be done through a mixture of lecturing and group activities during class time. 

**We don't expect you to be a MCB major! We simply ask that you have an interest in biology or science and have completed Chem 1A/Chem 4A**
