This workshop is open for middle schools and high school science teachers. Participants will learn basic concepts about Biotechnology and the curriculum of the ABE program. They will also acquire hands-on experience on three basic techniques in biotechnolgy: measurement at micro-scales using the micropipette, separation of molecules using electrophoresis, restriction digestion of DNA.  Lunch will be provided.

Labs covered: 

  • Laboratories 1.1 and 1.2: Micropipetting and Gel Electrophoresis
  • Laboratory 2: Preparing to Clone the rfp Gene: Digesting the pKAN-R and pARA
  • Laboratory 3: Building the pARA-R Plasmid
