BIOT S-200 Proseminar: Graduate Research Methods and Scholarly Writing in Biotechnology
planning ahead for next summer?
Check back in January, when we'll post updated information and the general course listings for 2018. If you join our email list, we'll contact you when the information is live.
In this proseminar, we focus on science writing, data interpretation, and collaborative and independent experimental design. Students who successfully complete the course are those who demonstrate an ability to assess information from the primary scientific literature, a command of oral and written communication skills, and the ability to generate a logical progression of experiments to help validate or nullify their hypothesis. Reading materials include publications on scientific writing and experimental design.
Mondays, Wednesdays, 6:30-9:30 pm
Northwest Science Building B109
Start dateMonday, June 19
The instructor assumes that students already have undergraduate degrees in an area of life, physical, or computer science, as well as professional scientific training. Scientists coming from a physical or computer science background should successfully complete BIOS S-1a and BIOS S-1b, and BIOS S-12, or their equivalents, before attempting to take BIOT S-200. Students must earn a satisfactory score on the test of critical reading and writing skills or a B or higher grade in the alternate expository writing course.
