Have you taken or are you taking...
20.320 (Cell Kinetics)
-Took last term
7.06 (Cell Biology)
-Taking next term
5.310 (General Chemistry Lab)
-Took a year ago
Do you have any experience culturing cells (mammalian, yeast or microbial)?
Do you have any experience in molecular biology (electrophoresis, PCR, etc)?
Not yet. I hope to gain some experience through 20.109.
Please briefly describe any previous laboratory experience
I don’t really have a lot of lab experience under my belt. Having taken 5.310 (Chemistry Lab), I have been exposed to some basic techniques and machines (like refractometry, mass spectroscopy, etc.) but nothing too extensive or in depth. I already feel comfortable in the lab environment but want to expand my knowledge base a lot more this semester.
Please briefly describe any previous technical communication experience you have
- Written Communication
- Oral Communication
In 5.310 and 20.310 I had a lot of practice with both written and oral communication. For 5.310 I had to present my research and findings orally and through written lab reports/technical writing. Also, in 20.310 we had both components where we presented a research project on a specific aspect and included a mock research article on the subject matter.
Anything else you would like us to know?
Team Pink Rules!
