Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend to take this course with this professor because she very methodical and organized throughout the whole course. In addition, this professor makes the course a lot easier than it looks by actually teaching the material and by providing the course with i>clicker2 questions with feedback. She also provides the lecture powerpoint slides on Canvas before class, and she posts study guides for each in-class exam.
The highlights of this course were the chapters on the techniques of cloning, cancer biology, and protein folding. However, the chapter on cancer biology was by far the most interesting, and the professor actually makes it easier to understand after you have read the material yourself.

Advice for students:
I would advise you to first read the assigned chapters, make your own notes, attend the lectures, make the lecture notes, collaborate the notes, and study the notes to make an A in this course.
