NUTR 236: Practicum in Bioresearch Techniques

1.0
Biochemical and Molecular Nutrition students must enroll in one practicum in bioresearch techniques. Students who anticipate a career in basic nutritional sciences require extensive laboratory training. Practicums in bioresearch techniques, established as a single, 1.0 credit course, will provide students with an understanding of critical experimental evaluation as well as hands-on experience in essential techniques of modern biology. In the practicum, students will answer a specific biologic question through experimentation. Faculty in participating laboratories will be responsible for providing an overview of the biologic interest of the laboratory, overseeing the development of a specific, defined project, teaching the theory of specific techniques to be employed, and training the students in the application of these techniques. Students will be evaluated through a written report and oral presentation in a laboratory meeting-type setting. Prerequisites: Graduate standing or instructor consent.
