SCHEDULE: Training will consist of a half-day of training combining lecture with lab work and discussion, from 9:00am – 12:30pm. Please see our recommendations for preparation.
COURSE FEE: $125
CONTENT: This practical course is for non-scientists who are interested in gaining an understanding of molecular biology-based concepts and techniques that drive the biotechnology industry. In the laboratory, we will perform genetic transformation using a reporter gene as well as express the reporter gene in vitro to augment and solidify the knowledge gained in lectures and discussions. Specific objectives may vary depending on the individual or group’s interests. These sessions may also be structured to be at an intermediate or advanced level.
