ABE Labs 1-5
We will offer a professional development workshop for Amgen Biotech Experience (ABE) Labs 1 - 5 on Friday evening (4:30-8:30 PM) November 30 and Saturday (9:00 AM - 4:00 PM) December 1, 2018. We will no longer be supporting Lab 6: Purification of Red Fluorescent Protein, due to budgetary constraints (see below). This will be the only ABE workshop offered during the 2018-2019 academic year, nor will we be offering an ABE workshop during summer, 2019, though other workshops will be offered.

The labs that will be covered in this training include:
Lab 1: Introduction to micropipetting. Introduction to agarose gel electrophoresis with dye molecules.
Lab 2: Restriction enzyme digest of DNA.
Lab 3: DNA ligation to form a new plasmid construct containing the gene encoding red fluorescent protein.
Lab 4: Agarose gel electrophoresis with DNA.
Lab 5: Bacterial transformation and plating.
