Description Animal Cell culture and immunochemistry is a core laboratory technique in many molecular biology, immunology, neurobiology and developmental biology laboratories. It is one of the fundamental techniques performed prior to molecular analysis, or for bio manufacturing of therapeutic proteins. This course is designed to provide students with the necessary technical and critical reasoning skills to perform animal cell culture and immunochemistry required in biotechnology industry or graduate school set up. The laboratory will emphasize the principles and practices of initiation, cultivation, maintenance and preservation of cells in culture. The laboratory will also impart skills related to experimental design, troubleshooting, budget preparation, data analysis, project management and team work, as student teams will be expected to design their own project timeline and deliverables.
