Learning Resources and Technology • Purchase your lab manual at the CO-OP: – Laboratory Experiments In Cellular and Molecular Biology • Purchase an iclicker remote (version 1 or 2 is fine) • An introduction biology textbook is also quite helpful • QUEST- where you can find pre- and post-lab assignments, grades (see next slide). • THE COURSE WEBSITE (see next slide).
What’s behind the QR Codes? • Updates: – At the beginning of each exercise – Should be checked before you come to lab • Instructional Videos: – Throughout each exercise – Should be watched before lab, but can also be watched during lab as a refresher. • Images for Lab Clean-up: – At the end of each exercise – MUST be looked at before you leave lab to make sure you have cleaned up your work area(s) properly.
