iBiology is offering a new online course: “Let’s Experiment: A Guide for Scientists Working at the Bench.”
“This free 6-week course features scientists from a variety of backgrounds, who provide concrete advice on how to design and carry out experiments in biological research. We use case studies to make the abstract more tangible. In science, there is often no simple right answer. However, with this course, you can develop a general approach to experimental design and understand what you are getting into before you begin.
By the end of this course, you will have:
- A detailed plan for your experiment(s) that you can discuss with a mentor.
- A flowchart for how to prioritize experiments.
- Tips and best practices for how to get started with an experiment.
- A lab notebook template that is so impressively organized, it will make your colleagues envious.
The course is designed for students and practitioners of experimental biology with busy schedules. If you are interested in learning more, please watch the trailer, visit the course page, or take a peek at the syllabus. The course starts February 19th, 2019.” (Via iBiology)
