Molecular Biotechnology Workshop 2017

In order to broaden students’ horizon on global development of molecular biotechnology in the recent years, more than 30 teachers and students have participated in a Molecular Biotechnology Workshop this Easter holidays. Students first attended a half-day pre-trip workshop in school, followed by a full-day trip to Beijing Genomic Institute and China National Genebank in Shenzhen the next day. During the visit, students could experience a hands-on experiment session related to forensic science. Students could utilize micropipettes to transfer DNA samples to agarose gel for electrophoresis, and analyzed the data to identify criminal. The participants have been benefited a lot in the two-day workshop. The workshop not only has well-equipped students with basic knowledge and skills in performing experiment on molecular biotechnology, but also has inspired students to work on advanced experiments in the future.
