Class Objectives
/Class Outline
In this laboratory course, students carry out experiments about enzyme kinetics, quantification of protein concentration, SNP. Students learn experimental procedures and evaluation methods for experimental data. Textbooks and/or supplemental materials helpful for detailed understanding of experimental design are handed out before each laboratory practice.
