Integrated cell biology/biochemistry/molecular genetics laboratories: the cytoplasmic genome projects
Department or Administrative Unit
This paper describes an integrated laboratory project for intermediate to advanced undergraduate students. The project spans an entire academic quarter (10 weeks) and involves a series of operations that give students experience with fundamental techniques in cell biology, molecular biology, biochemistry, genomics, and bioinformatics. In the process, the student learning community is strengthened, students gain increasing confidence in their abilities in the laboratory, and data are collected toward the eventual sequencing of a cytoplasmic genome. The culmination of the project is the preparation by students of a paper written in the format of a particularly accessible online journal.
