9780123970442: Molecular Microbiology Laboratory, Second Edition: A Writing-Intensive Course

Molecular Microbiology Laboratory, Second edition, is designed to teach essential principles and techniques of molecular biology and microbial ecology to upper-level undergraduates majoring in the life sciences and to develop students' scientific writing skills. A detailed lab preparation manual for instructors and teaching assistants accompanies the lab book and contains a general discussion of scientific writing and critical reading as well as detailed instructions for preparation and peer review of lab reports. Each experimental unit is accompanied by a number of additional writing exercises based upon primary journal articles.

  • Exposes students to the new molecular-based techniques
  • Provides faculty with an authoritative, accessible resource for teaching protocols
  • The only manual to incorporate writing exercises, presentation skills and tools for reading primary literature into the curriculum
  • Based on a successful course for which the author won a teaching award
New to this Edition: - Presents a real-world study of bacterial populations in the environment in the final experiment - Provides an overview of molecular biology in a new review chapter - Demonstrates how to design an experiment and how to interpret the results - Covers grant proposal writing and how panels review proposals - Presents guidance on public speaking and preparing PowerPoint presentations - Includes tutorials on three widely used software packages

From the Back Cover:

Molecular Microbiology Laboratory: A Writing-Intensive Course consists of four units designed to teach molecular biology techniques to juniors and seniors majoring in the life sciences. In the first unit, students prepare plasmid DNA, construct a restriction map of the plasmid, and transform it into E. coli. In the second unit, students express, purify, and analyze an affinity-tagged protein. The third unit includes an exciting experiment in which each student learns how to isolate genomic DNA, perform polymerase chain reaction (PCR), analyze and purify PCR products by gel electrophoresis, and obtain DNA sequence data. The fourth unit teaches students to perform Southern blots and to prepare hybridization probes. Additionally, this manual includes a general discussion of scientific writing and critical reading and detailed instructions for the preparation and peer review of lab reports. Each experimental unit is accompanied by a number of writing exercises based upon primary journal articles. The strategies in these articles employ the techniques that students learn in lab exercises, reinforcing their understanding of the material. This book will appeal to college students in any of the life sciences, including microbiology, genetics, general biology, biochemistry, molecular biology, botany and zoology. The experiments are also appropriate for properly equipped junior colleges and liberal arts institutions.

Unique Features:
* The second unit is not a typical cookbook lab exercise, because it offers the students the excitement and intellectual challenge of characterizing true unknowns. In principle, they could discover a new species! Despite the difficulties inherent in working with unknown bacteria, the procedure is very robust; a high success rate can be achieved even with inexperienced students.
* This is the ONLY manual that incorporates writing exercises into the curriculum. Writing is one of the most important skills that students develop in college. It is critical for their future success.
* An invaluable inclusion of COMPLETE journal articles is located in the Required and Suggested Reading section. Having these articles at hand saves time for the reader, and provides enlightening and useful information.
