Event description

Description

Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) is distinct from the DNA that comprises most of our genes. Mitochondria are inherited solely from the mother, so only maternal lines can be traced using mitochondrial DNA. In this workshop, you will isolate your own DNA from check cells and learn how to analyze DNA sequences using bioinformatics. We will examine your deep ancestry and find which haplogroup you belong to. We will also look into the various ancestry resources and discuss how you can use them in your classroom.

  • Breakfast, lunch, and a $100 stipend will be provided

  • Its FREE! To reserve a seat, please pay a $25 deposit fee which will be refunded to you upon arrival (if you need to cancel, please do so within 72 hours or the deposit will be forfeited).

  • Take BART! BART is only 2 flat blocks away (24th & Mission Station). If driving, we encourage carpooling and parking at the nearby garage will be fully reimbursed.

  • High school and community college science teachers have priority for this workshop.

Please forward this to your colleagues and new teachers! Thank-you!
