Due to the use of living organisms and the need for incubation time, make up labs are not possible. Alternative activities may be possible for excused absences, however no experience can completely replace hands-on experience with the organisms.


Lab write-ups are not required. However, the content from the lab and the materials covered in the lab report in your text will be the basis for your exams. You need to come to lab and ask for help on any questions that you cannot answer from the previous weeks report.


Open lab hours: Much of the work begun during the formal lab time must be completed before the next lab. The lab will be open for your use M-R 6am-10pm, F 6am –5pm, and Sat. 8am-4pm.
