Course description and aims

Bioengineering Lab Work I (Tsinghua University) is for students of Tokyo Tech-Tsinghua Joint Graduate Program. In this course, students work on projects 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 along with seminars. Students should actively participate in these courses.
Take Bioengineering Lab Work I-IV in serial order.
