Laboratory Skills

Practical Laboratory Training in Molecular Biology & Protein Expression - University of Warwick

The vast majority of this two week intensive course consists of hands-on laboratory work, providing the opportunity to learn vital and fundamental laboratory skills. An excellent theoretical background to the techniques is provided through accompanying discussion. The course will provide the opportunity to demonstrate your skill in the laboratory to employers through your own individual lab book write-up. The course will also give an insight into state-of-the-art methodologies used in a broad range of topics.

This course is deisgned for any one wanting a basic, hands-on introduction to practical biochemistry and molecular biology techniques including new graduates, health professionals and pharmaceutical industry personnel.

It is particularly suitable for Biotechnology, Bioprocessing and Business Management MSc students who need laboratory experience.
