Molecular Biology Lab: from DNA to Protein

From DNA to protein: This hands-on course covers basic molecular biology techniques, including how to manipulate DNA and RNA; how to clone a gene using polymerase chain reaction; how to insert the cloned gene into plasmids; and how to express the gene and translate it into a protein. Basic detection and imaging techniques are applied to visualize DNA, RNA and proteins. This course provides the necessary "wet lab" experience required to successfully communicate and collaborate with biologists.

At the end of the course, students will be able to:

Manipulate DNA and RNA and use the basic lab tools.

Clone a gene and translate it into a protein.

Handle basic experiments in a molecular biology lab.
