Lab day at Cambridge MBU

Dated: 28 May 2019

 
 
Last week, eight Woodhouse biology students took part in a microbiology immersion day at the mitochondrial biology unit at Cambridge University.
 
The day was led by Woodhouse biology teacher Dr Powell, who introduced the students to genetics and how genetic manipulation is carried out using CRISPR-CAS9.
 
(CRISPR is a family of DNA sequences found within the genomes of prokaryotic organisms such as bacteria and archaea.)
 
Dr Powell said “The students then got some hands on experience on carrying out a PCR and gel electrophoresis, before ending with some analysis of the results and how we sequence DNA.”
 
…And if you understand all of that you are definitely Woodhouse biology A level material!
