Intensive Practical Course in Molecular Biological Techniques (60 hours)
This intensive training course provides a thorough hands on experience in key molecular biological techniques used in various fields of biological, medical and forensic sciences.
The course is primarily aimed at individuals who are new to the area, theoretically familiar but lacking in practical bench training or wishing to enhance their practical skills further.
At the end of the course, the participants will be able to acquire an adequate level of proficiency to allow for the troubleshooting and optimisation of routine laboratory protocols to promote timeliness and cost effectiveness.
All practical work is conducted individually with the guidance of experienced persons in the relevant field.
This course will run from 9.00am to 4.00pm for 10 consecutive weekdays as a full-time programme.
Course dates: TBD
Senior and junior researchers who wish to establish in the field of molecular biology
Post A/L students interested in pursuing future studies in biological/biomedical sciences and/or forensic sciences
Individuals who seek career opportunities in medical diagnostic laboratories and forensic DNA laboratories
Those who wish to complement their knowledge in modern molecular biological techniques (e.g., medical doctors, medical laboratory technicians, forensic analysts, industry persons)
Cloning techniques: Isolation of plasmid DNA, Restriction enzyme digestion and transformations
DNA extraction techniques: Isolation of human genomic DNA from blood and forensic samples, Bacterial/Viral DNA and Plant DNA
RNA work: Isolation/purification and reverse transcriptase PCR assays
