Biol 540- Stable Isotope Theory and Methods

Lecture: Tu, Th 9:10 – 10:25 Lab: TU 1:25 – 4:15
Students will learn to design, interpret, and critically evaluate the use of stable isotopic tools. Specifically, we will focus on efficiently learning terminology and notation, sources of variation,
mathematical models of isotope composition, and key applications of stable isotope techniques. The laboratory section of the course will provide handson experience with stable isotope mass spectrometers WSU Stable Isotope Core Facility to train you to run your own samples.
