Teaching Biotechnology Skills through DNA Metabarcoding Biodiversity Research
New York City, NY

Learn how to lead your students in metabarcoding analyses using affordable biochemistry and online tools developed by the DNALC, leveraging next generation sequencing (NGS) to analyze thousands of DNA barcodes from complex mixtures of DNA—representing microbes (microbiomes) or organisms in environmental DNA (eDNA). DNA metabarcoding draws on techniques from molecular biology and introduces students to massively parallel genome analysis, including NGS quality ... Read more

Jason Williams and Anna Feitzinger DNA Learning Center, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, NY

Bring your own experiment! Join us this summer for a three-day exploration of Nanopore DNA sequencing. The hand-held Oxford Nanopore MinION sequencer can generate up to 50 billion DNA bases in 72 hours for less than $1500. Nanopore’s portability, ability to generate long reads (>1 million bases), and increasing accuracy make it a great choice for DNA and RNA sequencing, DNA modification detection, and metagenomics. Recently, Nanopore sequencing was used to ... Read more
