  • Welcome to MCB428 (Microbial Pathogens Laboratory). Classes are scheduled on Tuesdays and Thursdays and our first meeting is on Tuesday, August 29, 2017, in Room 218 Noyes Laboratory. Section A meets at 10 am-11:50 am; Section B meets at 1 pm-2:50 pm. In the first few sessions, students will be introduced to the course policies, biosafety, and general laboratory procedures. We will provide you with a lab coat and other personal protective equipment. Students may review this material in the Fall 2017 MCB428 Lab Manual that must be purchased at the Illini Union Bookstore. We will also review some general principles related to pathogens. Looking forward to seeing you in lab!
