youdontknowme1215 Posted October 27, 2015 Share Posted October 27, 2015 Hey Guys, Im just curious as to what kind of research experience, most of you have leaving your bachelors degree. What kind of techniques did you obtain, how involved were you in the projects you participated in, what kind of papers/pubs did you put out (if any) ect. Its weird bc I hear a lot of mixed signals. Sometimes Ive heard that students just finish undergrad are lucky if they know how to use a pipet; other times I hear that they were running their own project. I'm just curious to see how much research exposure everyone has/techniques they've learned, papers ect. I know for myself I've spent three years in the same lab. Two during UG and one post-bachelors functioning as a lab manager. I've worked on two rather large projects; in the midst of finishing one up now. I have also worked on two collaborations projects with outside facilities; one is in review, one is in still in the pipeline. First year was primary spending learning techniques/shadowing. Second year I was pretty much told which experiments to run and when. Currently, running my own project, from project layout, to experimental design. Skills: Western blotting, PCR, Genotyping, Immunohistochemistry, Immunocytochemistry, vibratome, cell culture, DNA isolation/purification, polysome fractionation, breeding/timed pregnancies of mice, dissections, confocal microscopy, maxi prep, and i have worked with neurolucidia.
