Schwekendiek Lab - University of Northern Iowa

The material on this page has been "stolen" from Prof. John C. Anderson at UC Berkeley. I could as well just have linked to it, but I decided to copy it because I want to replace the content with my own. Since I know me, this will take forever. Updated tutorials will be marked with this icon . Until this happens, I hope John will keep his valuable pages online and the links working. If the links become dead, please let me know and will hurry replacing the information. Pages marked with are a "must read"!

The Basics

Think the "Central Dogma" involves a kennel of chihuahuas? You need to start here with the basics. The material in this section needs to be understood by everyone before starting lab work. It is essential. But I assume this knowledge is present from other courses and I won't go over it (except upon request).
