Biology 05LA – Fall Quarter 2012 Introduction i Prologue This is the first installment of the Biology 05LA LAB MANUAL. While this document does not contain specific descriptions of lab activities, it does provide a great deal of information that is essential to the student wishing to do well in the course. Your first assignment for the quarter is to print a copy of this information and to read it carefully . Keep in mind that you will be held responsible for any information presented in this document ! Therefore, you should keep a copy available for later reference. The remaining portions of the lab manual, which comprise the individual lab exercises, will be published on the course websites (either 05A or 05LA). You will be expected to have printed a copy of each lab exercise before your lab meeting and to have done the required preparation for that lab as described later in this document. Don’t forget to bring a copy of current the lab exercise to your scheduled lab session. Do not use copies of the Biology 05LA lab manual from previous quarters – serious consequences may result.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
