Biology Lab


Welcome to the lab we use to teach Level 1 Cellular and Molecular Biology. Students come to university with different levels of lab experience. To make sure that everyone has the same foundation, the first few weeks of our first year course focus on learning basic lab skills.

If you have never had the opportunity to use a pipette or microscope, this is your chance. After learning the fundamentals, you will build on these skills and perform more complex procedures. For instance, one lab activity lets you amplify a region of your own genome and analyze your DNA polymerase chain reaction (PCR).
