GIDAS- Biotechnology Camp for High School Students

Description

This camp combines UNIX usage, wet-lab experiments, and thermodynamics calculation of nucleotide hybridization to teach current nucleotide biotechnology (qRT-PCR, microarray, next-generation sequencing). Wet-lab experiments will include PCR and gel-electrophoresis. As part of the camp, students will be encouraged to make a plan using new technology or improve technology, design it, and pitch the idea. No prior knowledge besides of DNA and RNA is necessary except for students’ motivation.
