Comment: Not the best professor and no the worst, but she did a great job at teaching us all of the lab techniques. I though the professor at times was hard to follow but overall very helpful. The material is very interestting, and highly recommend for anyone planning to pursue graduate school to take this course.

Comment: Let's be honest - she read from her ppt slides that she didn't post ahead of time - was pregnant and posted practice questions that were nothing like her exams. she also had very arbitrary grading scales that were basically data dumps. I liked the material a lot and my GSI made it bearable, but going to lecture was not extremely helpful because she basically read them to you or skipped around a lot and got you confused. I would avoid if I could. However, cell bio is cool stuff.
