This class is a one-day overview of Molecular Biology basics. Course topics include: DNA/RNA isolation, PCR, molecular cloning, gene expression, and methods troubleshooting. Hands-on experience in the laboratory reinforces knowledge gained in lecture and discussion.
|Nucleic acid isolation
||DNA isolation from cells; manual or automated|
|Nucleic acid analysis
||Visualize DNA using gel electrophoresis|
||rDNA technologies using bioluminescence|
||Protein expression and functionality|
Specific course objectives may vary depending on individual and group interests. Please contact us if you have questions.
After this class, you will be able to:
- Perform basic Molecular Biology experiments
- Conduct basic troubleshooting to improve your experimental design
This class also exists as a three-day course with additional lectures and hands-on training. Please inquire if you would like us to structure this course at an intermediate or advanced training level.
