Pharmacy news last time
..was corrected — the omission of the PCAT and PHYS 101 as prereqs for admission to UBC Pharmacy (BSc) will be for the cycle for entry in 2015W, not 2014W — see my previous post, which has now been updated
Co-op & my Winter break plans
My labmate and I tried to make a library from genomic DNA last week, and it failed. Probably one of the enzymatic reactions went wrong. Either that or a bead clean up gone wrong. Anyway, we will try again this week.
MICB 405 final was today. I didn’t see anything I didn’t expect, and in fact the first question was one I predicted yesterday, something about weight matrix calculations for protein sequences I don’t even remember anymore. The exam actually wasn’t completely memorization based, which was kind of nice, but memorization was still necessary..
Anyway, next term I’ll be taking MICB 421. I’ve heard plenty of things (mostly complaints) from whoever took 447 this year or 421 last year. Good thing I know my group well!
I am not sure what else I will take — PHIL 330 was brought to my attention (social and political philosophy). I am also interested in taking JAPN 100 but that is full right now :( currently, in addition to 421, I’m registered in MICB 406, MICB 425 and IHHS 200. Once upon a time, I did consider MICB 418 because the topics seemed of interest, but I heard it was pure memorization AKA no. edit: I’ve heard differently now
