BMSM 8050 Graduate Research Workshop ()


Credits: 1

Course Description:

This course allows for discussions about foundational design of experiments and the rationale for using various techniques. It allows one to critical evaluate experimental approaches employed and means to quantify data. In the wake of rapid technical advancements, it is very easy to ignore widely accepted older tools and techniques, which are used routinely in the lab, with respect to their precision, variability, reproducibility, and usefulness compared to older and newer methods. A major focus of this course will be on experimental designs, based on various methodologies: strengths and weaknesses. The discussion with respect to shortcomings of methods with respect to mechanics and quantitation of data analysis will be addressed.
