Who Should Attend
This is a three-day course for those interested in learning both fundamental and advanced level molecular biology techniques. Molecular biology techniques are being used extensively in modern day drug discovery, research and development, and diagnostics. It is intended for personnel with some scientific background seeking basic and advanced level molecular biology training. The course should be informative for personnel involved in, or participating in, molecular biology related and biotechnological research, supervision, scale-up or manufacturing and other technical operations.
Upon completion of this course, you will have gained an understanding of techniques that are currently being utilized in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries. You will be familiar with concepts pertaining to basic molecular biology principles and techniques for understanding various contemporary areas of research and their applications. You will have acquired the facility for communication with associates in various areas of molecular biology.
Molecular biology pertains to the study of living systems at the molecular level and provides a background appropriate for further work in the growing technologies of genomics, cell biology, biotechnology, microbiology, diagnostics and therapeutics. This course will focus on selected aspects of molecular biology that provide the non-specialist with the principles for understanding the structure and function relationships of molecular biology techniques including DNA manipulation, sequencing, cloning, subcloning, library construction, screening, RNA isolation and characterization, analysis of expression, microarrays, gene chips and RT-PCR. Multiple modern day molecular biology techniques in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries will be highlighted. Several examples of molecular techniques will be demonstrated in case studies and examples.
