Practical Training: Genes and Proteins
Full course description
This practical training provides students with a practical understanding of the most important techniques in molecular neuroscience. Students are made familiar with selected aspects of molecular biology that provide the non-specialist with the principles for understanding the structure and functional relationships of molecular biology techniques This includes basic laboratory techniques such as pipetting, pH titration and a protein assay. Specific techniques performed in the lab are DNA/RNA isolation and analysis, DNA synthesis and PCR
Students will be able to understand:
- standard techniques in molecular research laboratories;
- acquaintance with terms of molecular biology/biochemistry.
