BIOT 273 BIOTECHNOLOGY A: BASIC LAB SKILLS

4 Units - 3 hours lecture, 3 hours lab
Recommended Preparation: BIO 10  and BIOT 70 
Biotechnology transforms knowledge that emerges from life science research into products of value to people. This course provides students with a foundation in techniques necessary to work as effective professionals in a biotechnology laboratory or production facility. Emphasis placed on metrology (the study of measurement), solution preparation and sterilization, aseptic technique, performing assays and basic biological separation methods. The course integrates ethical considerations along with product quality systems documentation; trouble-shooting; calibration, accuracy and precision error reduction. Integrating a “quality-mind-set” into their laboratory work is important for students who plan to work in a biotechnology company or someday aspire to generate meaningful results in a research environment.
