Introduction to Biomedical Engineering - Lab Part 2
Learning Objectives: Students should leave this unit equipped with a theoretical understanding of how to detect DNA biomarkers and the relevance of this technology to human healthcare. Emphasis will be on good lab/experimental controls and the collection of statistically valid measurements. Students will also understand how commonly used lab devices function, and explore the recent efforts to simplify experiments and to lower costs. At the end of the section, students will explore creative new biosensor designs based on PCR and fluorescent imaging.

- Edit your group's wiki: Find your group's Wiki template in one of the Lab Write-Up sections. There are further instructions there. Be creative and have fun editing!
Most of the materials for our course are shared via Blackboard at ASU. The key feature of this OWW wiki are the Lab Write-up pages, where BME103 subgroups create their own PCR-based D.I.Y. biosensing device, inspired by the design of the Open PCR system. If you'd like to obtain more course materials, please contact the instructors (see People).
