Introduction to Molecular Biology
Time: Friday, June 3, 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm; Monday, June 6, 9:00-noon
Place: Bioinformatics Computer Core Lab (Rm 104), Life Sciences Bldg
Organizer: Jeff Elhai
Audience: Primarily 1st year students
Goals of session
Some of you know a good deal about molecular biology, while others of you know almost nothing at all. The notes that follow therefore may be not very entertaining or may be overwhelming. Especially to the latter group, I say that I can't tell how much is too much for you. So you tell me. Follow the notes as far as you can, focusing on what you CAN understand and what you can identify as important for further understanding. Then use the questionnaire to let me know where you are.

- Please complete the short questionnaire (earlier the better but at least two hours before the session)
Before coming to the SECOND session (Monday)
- Please look over whatever portion of the notes you feel you need to focus on.
- Please look carefully at the molecular biology problem set, questions: B3, B9, B10, C5, C6, D1, D5. We'll discuss them Monday and Tuesday.
- Please complete the REALLY short questionnaire (earlier the better but at least two hours before the session)
Before coming to the THIRD session (Monday)
- Please exhaust yourselves considering the molecular biology problem set so that we can reach completion on this last day.
- Please complete the REMARKABLY short questionnaire, considering (earlier the better but at least two hours before the session)
By the way, the Protein notes take forever to load, because of the size of Fig. 3. If you happen to be a web wizard and can tell me how to improve loading speed, please let me know.
