Molecular biology plays a critical role in different industrial and academic fields to provide an understanding of structures, functions, and internal controls of molecular structures within individual cells, all of which can be used to efficiently target new drugs, diagnose and treat diseases, and a better understanding of cell physiology. This course is very important in Clinical and Medical research, Pharmacy and Pharmacology, Biomedical sciences, Microbiology, and drug delivery.  

Attendees will gain valuable insights into the range of careers and laboratory research opportunities available. We have links with many companies that recruit researchers based on our recommendations. On completion of the course, the new skills developed by students throughout the course will be endorsed by our lecturers on LinkedIn and a reference can be provided upon request.

What the course will cover

Students then develop their practical skills learning the below techniques: 
• Hand on practical training on the different types of ELISA;
• Hand on training on the different types of Electrophoresis assays, Gel electrophoresis, and Western blotting
• Analyzing and reporting of results of the western blotting and gel electrophoresis,
• Independent assays to be performed by the students,
• Background introduction of the polymerase chain reaction (PCR), Primer designs tools and DNA/RNA extractions
• Hand on training on DNA/ RNA extraction methods,
• Performing PCR and RT-PCR and analyzing and reporting the results
• Maintaining good lab records

Attendance Requirements

Attendees should have basic laboratory skills and be confident in a laboratory environment before attending this course. Thus, this course is aimed at Level 4-6 learners who are still in the university or have just finished their studies and have a deep interest in pursuing academic research opportunities and/or a career in biotechnology.
