I feel the lab skills I have listed on my resume make me seem unqualified for some jobs I wish to pursue. Currently I have listed: Gel electrophoresis, Flow cytometry, ELISA, Light Microscopy, Cell staining.

Could I add other skills I have learned such as my experiences with pipetting, hemocytometer, working with blood samples, rat dissection, Intraperitoneal injections into mice, centrifugation, wet mounts, etc.

Is there a list somewhere that lists lab skills that you would use as a checklist?
Thanks!
