Hi guys. Today we did our first lab. It was the longest and the most professional lab I've ever done. We started out with simple exercises of using different types of micropipette to bacterial culture techniques. Although we had groups, we just discussed about how to follow the procedures correctly. Each of us worked individually. I really appreciate this opportunity of being in a well-equipped, professional lab at Brown everyday. I got my hands on some equipment I've never used before, such as microfuges.
This Bio-tech class overall is a challenging course even though I already had some AP Biology background in my sophomore year. The contents are not hard to get, but the assignments are pressuring on me, especially the heavy reading assignments and Lab prep's. However, I am glad that I got this chance to review and learn Bio-tech techniques as well as to practice my reading skills. I am being challenged but still having a good time.
More reading and quiz prep are waiting for me. See you guys next time!
