Introduction to Biotechnology, micropipetting, gel electrophoresis and DNA Restriction.
This workshop is open for middle schools and high school science teachers. Participants will learn basic concepts about Biotechnology and the curriculum of the ABE program. They will also have hands-on experience on basic biotechnology techniques such as: measurement at micro-scales using the micropipette, separation of molecules using electrophoresis, and restriction digestion of DNA.
