477H - Bioimaging

APPLY NOW for this great lab course! You will be informed of acceptance into the course by March 23. If spots are still available after this date, applications will continue to be accepted and enrollment decisions will be made on a rolling basis.

Bioimaging is a project based laboratory course that focuses on the use of microscopy in the life sciences, ranging from the principles of optics to the use of specialized microscopic techniques to investigate the structure and behavior of cells. Using research-quality fluorescence microscopes, students learn to use both phase and fluorescence microscopy, and to take digital stills and movies with both. They observe the movement and division of living cells, identify cellular organelles and they learn to fix and stain cells to see greater internal detail. Then they apply these techniques to the independent investigation of a particular problem regarding cell division, locomotion, or growth.

Prerequisite: Biology 285.
