ABS 705 - Research Methodology

Credits: 1-10
Advanced instruction in research methodology. Credit earned will depend on the module(s) taken. Each module will provide in-depth coverage on one type of techniques. Modules will involve lectures on the theory behind a technique, simulations/demonstrations of the techniques, and hands on experiments. Each module requires a colloquium (reports and discussions) designed to show the student how these techniques can be combined to solve a research problem. Course may be repeated as long as the module(s) are not repeated. Potential topic modules could include: Electrophoresis, liquid chromatography, spectroscopy, centrifugation, hybridization, cloning, PCR, monoclonal antibodies, protein characterization, light microscopy, electron microscopy, in situ hybridization, fluorescent imaging, chromosomal analysis, plant tissue culture, mammalian tissue culture, anaerobic bacterial culture, design of ecological field studies, sampling of terrestrial plants, sampling of aquatic plants, sampling of terrestrial animals, sampling of aquatic animals, geographic information systems and global positioning systems in ecology, analysis of ecological data, modeling and simulation in ecology, crop breeding techniques, and other topics as needed.  Prerequisites: Module instructor consent.
