Bio-Link webinars

Presenters : Linda Rehfuss, Jeanette Mowery, Lisa Seidman, Elaine Johnson, Linnea Fletcher In 2016, the Community College Consortium for Bioscience Credentials, funded by a Department of Labor grant, published a set of core technical skills and competencies that are held in common across the bioscience industry subsectors of Bioscience Laboratory Skills, Biomanufacturing, and Medical Devices. Consortium partners recognized the need to focus skill standards efforts on fundamentals that all entry-level bioscience technician would need in order to succeed, regardless of industry subsector, geographic location or individual job description. This webinar will discuss how these new skill standards can be valuable ... Read more
Together CRISPR and Cas provide bacteria with an adaptive immune system that allows them to identify and defend against new viral invaders. While characterizing the basic biology of this system, researchers discovered that the Cas9 protein could be harnessed to engineer genomic DNA. In this session, we discuss the basic biology of the CRISPR / Cas system and discuss how researchers are using this system in new ways to engineer living things. Presenters : ​ Thomas Tubon, Ph.D. Madison College, WI Sandra Porter, Ph.D. Bio-Link, Digital World Biology LLC Read more
Bio-Link goes to the movies! A Bio-Link webinar Learning how to navigate within a biopharmaceutical quality system isn’t something that can be taught easily in a classroom. The stakes are high -- one error can cost a company millions of dollars, lead to investigations by the FDA, or worse, cause harm to a patient. To show what it’s like to work in biopharmaceutical facilities, Bio-Link (the Next Generation National ATE Center of Excellence for Biotechnology and Life Sciences), and Pellet Productions, Inc. (the creators and producers of ATETV.org) have collaborated to produce Making the Call: Quality in Biomanufacturing. ... Read more

2016 Bio-Link Summer Fellows Forum

Presenter : Sonia Wallman, PhD Description : Biomanufacturing education and training at community colleges took off in the late 1980's through the development of the earliest biotechnology hands-on education and training programs in industry clusters in California, Massachusetts and North Carolina. Community college biomanufacturing programs follow local industry need-early programs focused on biopharmaceutical production and analysis. Recent growth of industrial biotechnology in locales across the nation has led to the development of programs focusing on bioenergy; sustainable energy production and distribution; production and analysis of microalgae, yeast and bacterial industrial bioproducts and biodiesel production and analysis. The presentation shows the ... Read more
Presenter : Ellyn Daugherty, Rock Star Science Participants learn strategies to plan and implement innovative STEM biotech curriculum for all students at all levels, leading students to do science in adult environments. Participants will conduct 2 computer activities (molecular modeling and primer design) from the new edition of Biotechnology: Science for the New Millennium, 2017. Read more
