Cloning DNA to Make Protein
Thursday - Saturday, June 20-23, 2013. 9:00AM-3:30PM daily
Also designed for high school biology, biotechnology, marine biology or chemistry teachers who have
experience with micropipetting and agarose gel electrophoresis (i.e. separating molecules by size).
Teachers will learn the basic techniques used in DNA cloning which include: using restriction
enzymes, ligation, bacterial transformation, protein expression and purification. Teachers will also
receive training in bioinformatics and explore ways to infuse science career awareness into their classrooms.
Basic skills in micropipetting and agarose gel electrophoresis required.
