This course aims at learning principles and methods for basic experiments in physical chemistry, organic chemistry, biochemistry, and molecular biology, which are required for conducting research in the laboratory.
By the end of this course, students will be able to:
1) Conduct basic biological experiments required for research in the laboratory.
2) Solve problems when in trouble with basic biological experiments.
3) Describe the aim, results, and discussion of biological experiments clearly.
Physical chemistry, Organic chemistry, Biochemistry, Molecular biology
|Intercultural skills||Communication skills||Specialist skills||Critical thinking skills||Practical and/or problem-solving skills|
Students start experiments after the guidance on the flow of the experiments in the first ~30 min in each class.
|Course schedule||Required learning|
|Class 1||Orientation is given in the 1st class. From the 2nd classes, students are divided to 4 groups, and take 2 of the 4 experiments; physical chemistry, organic chemistry, biochemistry, and molecular biology (other 2 experiments will be taken in Advanced Life Science Laboratory II). For each experiment, students perform 4 projects (3 classes for each).||Students must be able to perform basic experiments in physical chemistry, organic chemistry, biochemistry, and molecular biology, which are required for conducting research in the laboratory.|
An original textbook edited by the School of Life Science and Technology
Handouts will be distributed as necessary.
Assessment is based on understanding and active involvement in experiments (60%) and the quality of the written reports and the status of submission thereof (40%). Full attendance is compulsory.
Students must have successfully completed Basic Bioscience Laboratory I and Basic Bioscience Laboratory II.
