In this workshop we will play with DNA and learn how to
manipulate it using various techniques that are common in biotechnology. This
includes running gels, cutting and pasting DNA sequences, and using genetically
engineered DNA to produce recombinant proteins.
Students will get experience working with common tools used in molecular
biology labs, including micropipettors, electrophoresis equipment, UV/VIS
spectrometers, sonicators, and various
types of incubators.
The Workshop will be held in the Sonderegger Science Center on the Edgewood College Campus. The science center is a K-16 building that serves science students of all ages. 1000 Edgewood College drive, Madison, WI
