Experimental Biotechnology

Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati and NPTEL via Swayam

Overview

In the current MOOCs course I have put effort to briefly discuss different analytical techniques and their potential in solving the scientific problems. We are taking several scientific problems or questions which can be solved by using these techniques. By the end of this course, student will be able to understand:
1. Basics of Good Lab practices.
2. Understanding different analytical techniques and their applications.
3. Specific Scientific questions and their solutions.
4. Designing new experiments.
