  1. Setting up a Legal Scientific Notebook

  2. 1st Setting Up Your Legal Scientific Notebook • All the work you do as a lab technician in this biotechnology course is recorded in your legal scientific notebook • To be a good scientist, you must be able to • set up experiments • Document conditions • Analyze data • And report results

  3. Why Set Up legal Scientific Notebook Everyone at a biotechnology company, or involved in any type of research or product design for that matter, must document all of their work Legal Scientific Notebooks are used for this

  4. Why Set Up legal Scientific Notebook • Often times these are used in court cases • Settle patent disputes such as when someone argues that he/she made a discovery 1st and so says the discovery/process belongs to him/her • To report a specialists findings from testing, such as paternity suits or criminal cases • If a legal scientific notebook is not maintained it will be inadmissible as evidence

  5. How To Set Up A Legal Scientific Notebook • 1st, it must be a bound notebook with pages sewn in • 2nd use only black pen to make all entries • Incorrect entries must be lined out with a single line only and must be labeled with your initials and the date • 3rd Graphs &other small sheets of paper may be pasted into the notebook when necessary • Use a glue stick • There should be no loose pages in notebook

  7. Title Page: In the middle of the page in bold print write: BIOTECHNOLOGY NOTEBOOK 5thHour Lake Central High School (your name) September 15, 2011 Also write this info on the front cover of your notebook

  8.

  10. Practice! • Make your first entry: DNA Extraction from Human Epithelial Cells on p7-? • Write out the materials and procedure needed for the DNA extraction lab we did • Make sure to write your procedure such that I could give it to a biology student to follow and they would be able to do the lab
