The author would kindly like to thank Bruce F. Cooper, Ph.D. (Linbeck Construction Co.) for the development and design of BIOS 311 and David R. Caprette, Ph.D. (Rice University) for suggestions about this web page.
And many thanks to George N. Bennett, Ph.D. (Rice University) and Janet Braam, Ph.D. (Rice University) for the research projects in BIOS 312 and 313 and to Rachael L. Hanby, B.A. in Biochemistry, Rice University 2002, for her help with development of the BIOS 313 microarray lab module.
These laboratory courses were developed for Rice undergraduates to enhance their learning in the Biosciences Teaching Laboratories. These web pages are used in place of a written manual. Students often must use the results of one experiment to design subsequent experiments.
The experimental procedures and supplemental documents are not intended to be comprehensive. The author hopes that they will be of some use to existing laboratory programs that need to strengthen their teaching labs or as starting material for a new program.
