Most students found the labs in this course to be very interesting and a great way to apply the course material, although some found them to be too lengthy and suggested improvements to make them more organized and structured. Some found that the teaching assistants did not provide sufficient guidance regarding the lab experiments and grading schemes. Many students also indicated interest in learning more molecular techniques during the labs. Many commented on the use of Powerpoint slides in some lectures. Most of the class noted that the use of overheads and the blackboard throughout class made the lectures more interactive. Regarding the midterm exam, students indicated preference for more short answer questions rather than multiple-choice questions that are worth a lot of points. Nevertheless, most students noted Professor Hasenkampf's high level of enthusiasm and energy. Many found her to be helpful and approachable. In the words of a student, 'The Professor'made it worthwhile to come [to lecture] at 8 am in the morning.'

The midterm was deemed too difficult and this discouraged many students. Some students suggested the course could benefit from the introduction of tutorials. Professor Hasenkampf herself was widely appreciated in this course.

Professor Hasenkampf was very friendly and enthusiastic about her material. Students enjoyed the laboratory component and felt it could have been worth more of the overall grade. Use of Powerpoint slides in lecture was also suggested. Although the material was interesting, the methods of evaluation were a little intense, such as the lab component combined with exams and tutorials placed a heavy workload on students.
