You will extract genomic DNA from your own cheek cells, then precipitate and bottle it in a cool necklace. In this workshop, you will make friends who can help plan out your next biotech project, whether you want to win the science fair, work on a cool project, or change the world! No previous experience is necessary. We will teach you the required techniques and necessary background during the workshop!

    Hello All
    We will be re-scheduling this class - probably in mid- April. If you can send your email addresses to me directly (no need to post on this page), I will ensure I send you notice of the next set of Biotech Boot Camp classes.
    Thank you for your interest.
