Course Description

The BIO1101 laboratory course is an introduction to laboratory techniques and their application to the understanding of general biological concepts. It focuses on the fundamental principles of biology, including taxonomy, structure, reproduction, heredity, development and evolution. The concepts of molecular biology and DNA fingerprinting using representative plants and animals are introduced. The course also includes the use and care of the microscope.

Learning Outcomes:
Upon completion of the BIO1101 lab, the students will be able to:
1.To learn to be observant and to develop and sharpen those observational and critical thinking skills through inquiry..

3.To learn to think analytically about the observations you have made – to be able to:
a.analyze a problem and focus on a hypothesis to be tested.
b.determine the best way of testing the hypothesis, and using creativity to solve problems, including interpretation of data.
4.To communicate your findings about the processes studied and results obtained in ways appropriate to the biological sciences, both in written and oral formats.
5.To become familiar with the use of computers to gather, discuss and analyze data
6.To work on collaborative projects and also in teams.
