Want to get some hands-on experience in molecular biology? We are offering a 1 day introductory course that will guide you through the basics of molecular biology and the technique of bacterial transformation.
Transformation is an essential laboratory procedure for incorporating foreign DNA into microbes. Not only will you learn the underlying biology of how this method works, but you will use it to engineer E. coli bacteria that express green fluorescent protein!
This course will provide you with an introduction to molecular biology techniques, a plate full of glowing bacteria, and the opportunity to start your own project at Boslab!
The class instructors:
Raphael Laurenceau, PhD - Microbiologist, postdoc researcher at MIT, loves everything related to bacteria.
Angela Kaczmarczyk, PhD - Teaching fellow at Harvard, developmental biologist, passionate about science communication and DIY biology.
To participate in class you have to be 18+ years old or be accompanied by someone who is 18+ years old.
