Description:
Animal Cell Culture Basics and Applications is a two days workshop designed for beginners as well as current users who want to obtain a better understanding of animal cell culture and technique applications, such as transfection. Cell culture has become one of the most powerful tools in cell and molecular biology. Its applications go from cancer research to genetic engineering, drug development and gene therapy, among others. Transfection is the delivery of foreign molecules, such as nucleic acids, into eukaryotic cells. This cell culture application has become a very useful tool in the study of gene expression, mutation analysis and the production of specific proteins for further purification and examination.

Workshop content will include basic applications that cover the principles of animal cell culture and transfection. Users will learn how to apply the topics discussed to their own laboratory settings. The main objective is to provide all trainees with the knowledge and skills necessary to apply this methodology, as needed, in any scientific environment. The workshop is designed to teach: (1) experimental technique; (2) experiments design; (3) data analysis; (4) proper reagents,materials and instruments use; (5) safety precautions.

  • Western

ID#
MB-0006

Series Type:
Workshop

Intended Audience:
Biotechnology type industry, Graduate, Medical or Forensic career

Scope:
This workshop is projected as an active learning experience, which combines theory and practice, suitable for researchers, technicians, post-graduate students or anyone interested to learn more about Southern Blot, Western Blot and related technologies. Also, it is designed to be offered to a small group of participants in order to facilitate their learning experience.

Description:
DNA and Protein Analysis: Southern and Western Blot is a two days workshop designed for beginners as well as current users who want to obtain a better understanding of DNA and protein analysis techniques, such as Southern and Western Blot. Southern Blot is a molecular technique used to detect the presence of a particular gene sequence within a mixture of DNA fragments. Its applications include gene families identification, genetic diseases studies and fingerprinting. Western Blot is also a valuable molecular biology technique that allows the identification of a specific protein in a particular cell type. It is well used in biochemistry and immunogenetics. An important difference between these techniques is the use of antibodies in Western Blot rather than a labeled DNA strand as in Southern Blot.

Workshop content will include basic applications that cover the principles of Southern and Western Blot. Users will learn how to apply the topics discussed to their own laboratory settings. The main objective is to provide all trainees with the knowledge and skills necessary to apply this methodology, as needed, in any scientific environment. The workshop is designed to teach: (1) experimental technique; (2) experiments design; (3) data analysis; (4) proper reagents, materials and instruments use; (5) safety precautions.
