DNA Electrophoresis and PCR-Beyond the Basics

Note* MassBioEd is offering a series of remote workshops that can be used to earn PDPs. Teachers participating in 10 hours of training can earn 10 PDPs. All workshops can be found on our events pageThis workshop with associated homework qualifies for 10 hours towards PDPs.

This is one of two possibilities for meeting the final workshop requirement for teachers enrolled in the graduate course.  

Looking to take your biotech labs to the next level?  Participants will manipulate sequences using SnapGene Viewer (a free online program), practice PCR primer design, learn about different DNA and cloning methods. In addition, participants will explore the BLAST Sequence Analysis Tool, and review gel electrophoresis techniques to provide the best results for your students.

This workshop is self-paced, but you are required to attend 2 of 3 possible office hours scheduled for April 15th, April 20th, and April 23 from 4:00 - 5:00 PM.
