Course Number 
High School
Completion of AP Biology (OB010) during the previous academic year

AP Biology Lab is a residential summer course held on-campus during Summer @ Stanford that allows students to explore college-level introductory biology topics through hands-on experimentation. Experiments correspond with topics covered in AP Biology (OB010). Techniques utilized to explore these topics may include polymerase chain reaction (PCR), gel electrophoresis of nucleotides or proteins, ELISA, and microscopy. Emphasis is placed on understanding the process of science, experimental design and interpretation, and the relevance of biology to our everyday lives. Students gain experience with modern biological techniques currently used in molecular biology and medical diagnostic labs, as well as learning to effectively record and communicate results.
