BIOL 8664 BIOCHEMISTRY II LABORATORY (1 credit)
A laboratory course to help integrate the concepts learned in Biochemistry II lecture with the development of biochemical laboratory skills, to gain practical experience in experimental design, data analysis, presentation of results and communication of scientific information, with a focus on formal instruction in journal-style writing and notebook skills. There is an emphasis on nucleic acid properties. Fulfills the third writing course requirement for students majoring in chemistry when NSCI 3940 and another approved laboratory course have been completed with a C- or better. (Spring) (Cross-listed with BIOL 4664, CHEM 4664, CHEM 8664).
The goal of the proposed certificate is to provide a post-baccalaureate experience that will prepare students for future clinical training, particularly schooling for medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, physician assistant, or veterinarian. This certificate is distinct from the MS in biology, which aims to provide a broad experience in biological research. Certificate students receive integrated career and academic advising through the UNO Health Careers Resource Center (HCRC).
