ANIM 310

This is a laboratory-lecture integrated course where participants will learn and apply the theory and techniques associated with the isolation, purification, quantification, manipulation and characterization of nucleic acids. Topics include extraction of genomic DNA, restriction endonuclease digestions, polymerase chain reaction (PCR), genotyping, molecular diagnostics, nucleic acid blotting assays, protein isolation and characterization, immunoblotting, ELISA and bioinformatics.  GLP (Good Laboratory Practices) will be an underlying theme throughout the course and will be evaluated via laboratory notebooks, scientific reports and practical examinations designed to assess effective laboratory skills.
