Comments on the course

Great course that doesn’t require prior information on cell biology. The prof and TAs really tried to explain the concepts and made the content and labs easier. The pre lab quizzes were straightforward but could be tough some times. The labs were time consuming but not too hard thanks to the TA. The lab reports were straightforward and not too difficult and the TAs really helped with any questions. The formal lab report is a little harder to get marks in but it’s just an accumulation of the lab reports don’t throughout the semester. There are 3 tests throughout the semester which can be tough.

Comments on the professor

Prof was great and explain concepts very well and tried to make the slides engaging.

Advice

Definitely take this course if you plan on doing any cell biology course in the future such as BIO 2B03 as it opens up the options for many courses especially if you’re in life science.

Comments on the course

The modules for this course were tough (the module lady spoke insanely quickly), but the applied lectures were interesting. The first midterm was the most challenging, but the subsequent evaluations were more fair.

Comments on the professor

Dr. da Silva was pretty accomodating during the semester, and even dropped everyone's worst test of the 3.

Advice

Keep on top of the work and try not to cram your studying. Focus on having an understanding of the concepts covered over memorization
