MIP 611 - Advanced Microbiological Research Methods  

  • 4 credits

The 21st century microbiologist requires a working knowledge of an ever-growing arsenal of microbiological and molecular research techniques in order to be an effective experimentalist and understand the current literature. This course will provide graduate students with an in-depth understanding of a wide array of experimental techniques commonly used to investigate the cellular and molecular biology of disease. Students will learn to determine which techniques are best for a particular situation as well as how to analyze and interpret experimental results.
