Dedicated to teaching students fundamental laboratory skills in modern molecular biology. The skills are updated on a rolling basis in consultation with MCDB faculty and local Pharma/Biotech companies in an effort to provide students with real world skills that can help them transition from a traditional lab course environment to a more independent research environment. Students can mix and match various skills to receive one or more university credit hours and students who successfully complete a module are given a certificate recognizing their competency. Skills can be viewed at https://skillscenter.colorado.edu/ Recommended prerequisite: MCDB 1150 or MCDB 1111 or EBIO 1220. May be repeated up to 15 total credit hours.
