Course description and aims

In this course, students proceed with a project given by their instructors. Students learn practical experimental techniques to pursue the project, as well as the underlying principles. In addition, students learn how to record the methods and results of experiments and understand the importance of experimental data as intellectual properties. Through these activities, students also learn ethics in scientific research.
This course plays a central role in the curricula of the department together with seminars. Students should actively learn these courses.

Student learning outcomes

By the end of this course, students will be able to
1) acquire practical experimental techniques in life science
2) understand the principles underlying those techniques
3) record materials, methods and results in laboratory notebooks in a proper manner
4) make short- and mid-term experiment plans to pursue the long-term project
