Supreme Chancellor Escherichia coli, leader of the Galactic Republic, dispatches Jedi Master Ian Johnson and his apprentice Obi-Wan Scottie to negotiate with the Bug Federation leadership to end a blockade of microbial battleships around the planet OSN. Join us in this hands on Workshop and learn how to work with laboratory strains of bacteria. What is a growth curve? How do you streak bacteria for a single pure colony. What is aseptic technique? Can you lick a agar plate? The knowledge gained in this important workshop will help you on your path to cloning plasmid DNA.
