The Wolbachia Project (Cambridge)

**Please note that this workshop has reached capacity. You can still register and your name will be included on the waiting list. We will notify you if space becomes available.

Experience the next generation of the Wolbachia Project, which, for over 10 years, has introduced real-world scientific research into high school biology labs and lesson plans with inquiry, discovery, biotechnology, and a culture of excellence. 

Wolbachia is a bacterium that infects insects and is currently being tested as a biological agent to combat Dengue Fever and Zika outbreaks.  Participants will complete a revised, inexpensive PCR protocol for determining if insects are infected with the bacteria and receive reagents to do the investigation with their students.
