Hands-on experimentation, learning real world lab techniques, and making connections to the material presented in lecture were the highlights of this course. The grading system lacked clarity and the lab time was often spent waiting around, which many students thought were the worst aspects of the course. More engaging and better organized labs, an updated grading scale, and less emphasis on the practical would improve this course. Prospective students should know that the class requires a great deal of study time, and you should have a background in cell biology or biochemistry.
