Methods in Personal Genetics and DNA Barcoding DNA Sequencing, PCR, and Taq Supply Chain Production
Los Angeles, CA
Join us for a comprehensive introduction to popular experiments in polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and DNA sequencing developed by the DNA Learning Center (DNALC). Included are three experiments in personal genetics: Alu insertion Polymorphism, Bitter Taste Receptor Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP), and Mitochondrial (Mt) Control Region DNA Sequence Variations. The DNA barcoding experiment uses DNA sequence variation in Mt or chloroplast genes to positively identify plants and animals. The experiments entail the entire data life cycle – including data generation, database searches, and analysis using the DNALC’s bioinformatics tool, DNA Subway. The workshop introduces a new method to produce affordable Taq polymerase and to introduce biotech workforce skills into your classes.
