... gaining hands-on experience in core technical advances of contemporary life science. We have developed a yeast fluctuation test that has been successfully performed over the past 5 years by 20 freshmen per year. It is a component module of a lab that substitutes for the regular lab part of our...

... a true research project. Students work through a 10-step experimental design culminating in the construction, expression, and visualization of microtubules fused to green fluorescent protein in baker's yeast. The steps of this project include the isolation of the tubulin gene from yeast genomic DNA...
