Pretty easy, overall.
I would recommend this class because it gives undergraduate students, new comers or not, a well experience on real hand research. Plus its fun meeting and working with new people.
As a freshmen I learned so much. I worked in a project that is called SEA-PHAGES. In this lab I learned to work in aseptic techniques, which is basically working in an area this is minimal with bacteria, since you do not want any contamination on your experiment. I learned about phages and how they can be obtained from soil, or sea water. The fun part was extracting the DNA and seeing the size and figure of your own phage.

Advice for students:
Put effort in this lab! It really is fun and you want the best results you can get!. You might even be able to discover a new Phage!. Most importantly, read the lab manual that's provided either online or hand, you can see the procedures of every step and the tests are also dependent on the manual. Over all just enjoy the experience and have fun!.
