2:00      MICROSCOPY WORKSHOP  

30 minutes talking, then hands-on 

microscopy workshop on scopes.


1:00 - 4:00     DNA SEQUENCING  WORKSHOP              

1 hour lecture on DNA sequencing and live demo on how to process sequences and make phylogenetic trees . DNA sequencing can take  a long time, depending on how many samples are being processed. For that reason, stay tuned as we may make slight changes to this schedule.: 

                   -    2 hours for DNA extraction, 

            -    2 hours to run the PCR, 

                  -   1 hour for electrophoresis


To Our Participants: We'd appreciate if those who have their own microscopes would bring them so we have enough opportunities for everyone to take a peak. If you do, please let us know by emailing to .
