We have chosen the above PGs/PSLOs in order for our students to develop essential skills required for any biologist, including the ability to design experiments, to collect raw data and to perform statistical analysis of results. Development of these skills should also help students understand research laboratory work flow and appreciate scientific methodology, research integrity, collaboration and the critical role of research in today’s society. The PGs/PSLOs are also design to stimulate Intellectual Discovery and Creativity and help students develop technical lab skills required in research.
