Online Certificate Course on Molecular Biology Techniques
COMSTECH Secretariat, Islamabad in Collaboration with the International Center for Chemical and Biological Sciences (ICCBS) Karachi, Pakistan
January 11-12, 2021
Molecular biology is an important area of interest for scientists working in various disciplines including structural biology, genetics, biochemistry, and biotechnology etc. Molecular biology plays important roles in understanding formations, actions, and regulations of various parts of cells which can be used to efficiently targets new drugs, diagnose diseases, and understand the physiology of the cell. This two-day online certificate course comprised of lectures followed by training sessions on “Basic concepts and techniques in molecular biology”. The course is designed to teach the basic skills of molecular biology to participants from all scientific disciplines those have little or no previous experience in molecular biology hands on work. It is also an ideal course for those who would like to consolidate their current, basic skill level and to further polish their handling skills.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
The course is designed for the large group of audience including graduate students, scientists, research scholars, and medical doctors those have interest to work at molecular level in related fields of molecular biology. People from variety of disciplines and academic backgrounds including Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Genetics, and Biotechnology can get benefit from this workshop.
The program includes a series of online lectures and hands-on sessions on the following topics;
Basic Cloning Requirements
Polymerase Chain Reaction
Agarose Gel Electrophoresis
Extraction of DNA from Agarose Gel
Cloning and Expression Vectors
Preparation and Purification of Plasmid DNA
