Genetic modification is a hot topic these days, but what exactly is it?! During this one week BioHack course you will learn about cells, DNA and how you can modify this genetic material. In fact, you will hack i.e. genetically modify an organism yourself! Subsequently, with a DNA detection method (also used in crime scene investigations) you will investigate whether your genetic modification succeeded.
Monday - introduction and DNA extraction
Tuesday - genetic modification
Wednesday - background in cell biology and genetics
Thursday - results on genetic modification and PCR on genetically modified organism
Friday - results PCR and Future of Genetics: CRISPR/CAS9
Daily from 10:00-17:00
