Molecular Biology Summer Workshop

Learn molecular biology in 2 weeks!

This two-week long course covers in-depth DNA cloning, gene expression analysis, DNA sequencing (including NextGen and RNA-seq), genomics, bioinformatics, CRISPR/Cas9, RNA interference, PCR and quantitative PCR, protein expression systems and proteomics. Learn hands-on techniques used in gene expression analysis including microarray analysis, RNAi and quantitative RT-PCR, bioinformatics and genomics and proteomics.

No previous experience in molecular biology is required or expected. Forty participants will be selected from a variety of disciplines and academic backgrounds, including principal investigators, directors of programs, medical doctors, research scientists, postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, research assistants, sales associates, equipment engineers, etc. Applications will be accepted on a first come, first served basis.
