Introductory Biology Lab - Biology 173

An experiment is where the rubber meets the road: your idea gets tested and you learn if you've asked the right questions. As an introduction to experimental biology, this class leads you through the process of experiment design, data collection and analysis, and report writing. You will visit breathtaking habitats in Northern Michigan to test your hand at research.

Like its Ann Arbor counterpart, this class includes exposure to biochemistry, molecular genetics, evolution and ecology.

BIOLOGY 173 is a one-term project-based laboratory course that with BIOLOGY 171 and 172 forms the introductory biology sequence at the University of Michigan.



BIOLOGY 163 or 171 or 172 or 174 or 195.

Meets: Tuesdays and Fridays
