General Biology Laboratory gives biology (and other science) majors their first
experience in the laboratory. Heavy emphasis is placed on critical
thinking skills, and on having students design and execute original
experiments when given background on a particular topic.
If you have questions about lab requirements, grading, or other issues specific to your lab course, please contact your laboratory instructor directly. But if you have questions about how the labs operate, or problems with your specific lab section, please contact the Coordinator of First Year Laboratories, Dr. Dana Krempels.
Biology (BIL 150) is a pre- or corequisite for BIL 151.

2. Your lab instructor will offer comments and revisions, and send it back to you.
3. Revise your protocol accordingly, and re-send to your lab instructor.
4. Repeat, as necessary, until your protocol is Food of the Gods.
