A course for those who wish to develop their understanding of the principles and applications of genetic engineering techniques.
Genetic engineering techniques have found clinical applications and opened up new opportunities in medical research, in areas such as clinical genetics, medical microbiology and virology, epidemiology, pathology, endocrinology, neurology and immunology.
Those attending the course should gain an improved understanding of:
cDNA and genomic cloning;
use of restriction enzymes;
plasmid, viral and cosmid vectors;
expression of cloned DNA;
characterising the human genome;
raising and using antibodies;
diagnosis of inherited diseases including mutation detection.
Attendance fees range from £530 to £830.
