BI 545 Advanced Lab in Cell Imaging (Fall/Spring: 2)
BI204 and additional course work in cell and/or molecular biology.
This course satisfies the advanced experience requirement for biology majors.
This course will survey the various visualization techniques and instruments
used by scientists and biomedical researchers: light microscopy, confocal,
electron microscopy, super-resolution, and image processing. Students will
discuss the experimental use of these techniques and instruments as described
in the primary literature. The laboratory component will focus on becoming
familiar with the instrumentation that we have available at Boston College.
The course will culminate in individual projects of the students choosing
utilizing equipment that we have in the laboratory.
