BIOL 411 - Molecular and Biotechnology Techniques and Applications


4 Credit(s)
A course designed to provide students with intensive, hands- on laboratory experiences needed to effectively function in biomedical and biotechnological research settings. Laboratory topics and exercise include tissue culture techniques, isolation and culturing of stem cells for various research purposes, molecular separation and purification methods for DNA, RNA and protein, synthesis of cDNA and oligonucleotide probes, PCR techniques and gene cloning genomic library construction and analysis restriction enzyme digestion and analysis, DNA sequencing, Northern and Southern blotting, DNA micro- array technology, manipulation of proteins by electrophoresis, western blotting and immune-detection techniques, Protein sequencing, Bioinformatics and human analysis. This course is a laboratory component of BIOL 410  and it is recommended for students seeking a sound knowledge of Molecular and Biotechnological techniques. Upon successful completion of the laboratory active, students would be required to complete a summer internship program in one of the Biomedical Research Centers like NIH, CDC and FDA laboratories, or any of the Biotechnology companies located here in MD. This course is offered once a year during the Spring Semester.
