I teach part of an intensive laboratory course (Biology 2290F/G) that deals with basic techniques, experimental design, data analysis and scientific communication. In summer, I work on experimental systems that we can later use in class. I publish the most interesting findings in journals of biology laboratory education so that they are available to laboratory instructors at other universities.
