ISTA Annual Conference, Maynooth University

Two 1 h introductory workshops are offered at the ISTA Annual Conference. Teachers will have the opportunity to use professional laboratory equipment to practice current molecular biology techniques.  Techniques include microvolumetric pipetting and DNA gel electrophoresis. Experiments have been adapted to match school lesson duration, and all equipment is safe to be used in a classroom setting. Furthermore, teachers will be given information how they can borrow the equipment for their school in order to perform the experiments with their own classes. (Please note that due to logistically reasons, we are mainly operating in the province of Leinster).
