|Dates:||13 July 2011|
|Times:||09:30 - 15:30|
|What is it:||Outreach and enrichment activities|
|Who is it for:||Post 16|
Microbiology examines bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites, and investigates their role in disease and their application in biotechnology. Modern microbiologists use a range of cutting-edge molecular biology techniques, manipulating the DNA of microbes in order to further understand how they function.
On the Discover Molecular Microbiology Day you will find out more about the Microbiology course at Manchester, the types of career available to you as a Microbiology graduate and the research going on right now in our labs.
You will get the chance to do some hands-on microbiology, which will include:
• Making plasmid DNA from bacteria
• Carrying out a restriction endonuclease digest of their DNA
• Analysing the results by agarose gel electrophoresis
