Goals of the Course: The intent of this course is to familiarize you with the wealth of technology that is available to you, as a graduate student in the departments of Biology and Chemistry. Moreover, it is designed to stimulate you to avail yourself of this technology -either as an academic exercise in understanding of scientific information or (more preferably) as a specific aid in your research endeavours. There are no exams, per se, but you will be asked to submit a "protocol" that would aid an incoming student researcher in the use of one of the instruments that will be discussed throughout the course.

Ethical considerations: Unless otherwise stated, all written documents that are submitted for evaluation are considered to be the sole property and idea(s) of the individual student that is submiting them. Any student(s) caught copying or cheating will automatically receive zero credit for that particular submission, and possibly be subject to further disciplinary action.

** I know that some of you have a lecture at 10:00am on Thurs. No worries. I will address this concern at the introductory lecture on Mar. 5th.
