It is pretty challenging to proceed smoothly from lectures and lab work to reading science publications and doing independent research. This topic serves as an intermediate to facilitate this transition. It contains thorough step-by-step reviews of papers spanning several different topics. Those reviews offer more depth and detail than the popular science articles introducing new research, but are generally written in a more user-friendly language than a typical paper. They will familiarize you with the applications of the popular experimental techniques as part of large research projects aimed at elucidating various aspects of molecular biology.
