Some of us use microbiology regularly in our kitchens for baking bread or making yogurt. Many people even make their own beer and wine. Still, even as a microbiologist, I never considered teaching Microbiology through distance learning. Ms. Consani is the first person I've met who does this. She has taught Microbiology online for the past five years using a kit from https://www.holscience.com/lab-kits/ in addition to seven years of experience teaching online labs in general biology and histology.

Six protective antibodies bound to HIV fusion structure

Antibodies are one of the most common products made by biotech companies. They are used to provide passive immunity to certain kinds of viruses and some bacterial toxins. They are used to treat many forms of cancer. At least 41 companies are currently working to develop, test for, or isolate antibodies against COVID-19 .

A few weeks ago, we heard Dr. Margaret Bryans from the Northeast Biomanufacturing Center and Collaborative (NBC2), at Montgomery County Community College, ... Read more

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
