Event Details

Three sessions

Sundays Jan 27th, Feb 3rd & Feb 10th 3PM-7PM

 

Did you know that an entire human genome can be sequenced in less than three days? And that all the cheese that you eat is made with genetically engineered rennet? Biotechnology touches our lives in many ways, and it is changing with blinding speed. This course covers the basic techniques that facilitated the biotechnology revolution, and show you where it is headed in the near future. We go over the basic concepts, then get right into the wet lab work. You will isolate mitochondrial DNA from yourself and amplify it for sequencing using PCR. When the sequence data comes back, we use bioinformatics to interpret it. You'll learn the fundamental techniques for pursuing genetic engineering projects, including gel electrophoresis and the use of restriction enzymes for cutting DNA. This is a great first course.
