lab techniques


Registered Member
Hello everyone!

I'm a student at Glendale Community College, majoring in bioengineering. I plan to transfer either to UCLA or UCB. I'm looking for a lab internship, and since I've never done that before, and have started wondering into the field not so long ago, I would appreciate very much if someone answered my questions.

My first question is the following. Applications for lab internship usually ask a question like: what is it that you specifically expect to develop through this internship? What skills and/or techniques? Honestly, I don't know much about what I can develop. I know for sure that I can probe into tissue cultures and artificial cultivation of microorganisms.. but do, please, tell me more about basic techniques.
