Core Laboratory Techniques

This module is designed to develop your experimental research skills and give you a comprehensive understanding of the theory and practice of key molecular biology techniques such as:

  • Molecular cloning
  • PCR and agarose gel electrophoresis
  • qPCR
  • CRISPR_Cas9
  • Western blotting

The series of laboratory sessions will allow you to determine human genotypes, induce mutations, test gene expression and compare protein expression levels. In addition, this module will demonstrate how to use online bioinformatics/nucleic acid sequence databases for sequence comparisons and PCR primer design.
