BIOL 2090U – Research in Biological Science I


The course involves carrying out research work in a biology research laboratory under the supervision of a faculty member. The course will provide hands-on laboratory research experience and exposure to a particular biological discipline. The student will participate in the formulation research objectives and the experimental design used in the study. Students must have a written approval of the prospective supervisor to enroll in the course. Enrollment in this course is generally restricted to students in the Biological Science program, but students from other Faculty of Science programs can also apply. The expected learning outcomes will be appropriate for the year level and will be defined by the supervisor and included in the acceptance letter. If the student is working in the capacity of a work-study student, enrolled in additional courses within the Undergraduate Research Program or a thesis/Directed Studies student in the supervisor's laboratory, the research project of this course must be in a different topic. A minimum of six hours of laboratory work will be required per week. To be considered for this course, students must have successfully completed first year (30 credit hours) as well as the required prerequisite courses, and be in clear academic standing (cumulative GPA of 2.0 or better). Additional prerequisite courses may be required depending on research project.
