We got this mural

This Friday, we will discuss the design and use of molecular diagnostic tests for detecting SARS-CoV-2, specifically, quantitative RT-PCR. This test uses Reverse transcriptase to make a copy of the novel coronavirus RNA, and fluorescent probes to measure the amount of viral RNA in a sample.

Dr. Meei-Li Huang from the Virology division at the University of Washington will join us. Dr. Huang is part of a group that has been working on the front lines since late February to evaluate quantitative PCR assays and test people for COVID-19.

We will also talk ... Read more

Going Virtual while Sheltering-in-place: Developing Tools & Strategies (Zoom Meeting)

With the onset of the current pandemic, when the shelter-in-place order was first put into effect, it took a long moment to take it all in.

Rather than canceling everything and ending the semester abruptly, we were being encouraged to continue however possible, somehow developing engaging and comparable online versions of all our coursework and program-related activities.

VIEW THE RECORDING

Antibodies are one of the most common products made by biotech companies. They can be used to block viral infections and treat many forms of cancer. But first, we need to grow the cells that make them (biomanufacturing - upstream processing) and then, we need to purify them (downstream processing).

In this week's Friday webinar, Dr. Margaret Bryans will tell us about an on-line module from Montgomery County ... Read more
