Course Code: BIOT 202

Academic Year: 2019-2020

Students are introduced to the theory and techniques associated with isolation, purification, manipulation and characterization of nucleic acids. Students explore the isolation of RNA and DNA, restriction endonuclease digestion, plasmid mapping, hybridization analysis, creation of recombinant plasmids, polymerase chain reaction, and transformation of bacteria using plasmid DNA. Students will enhance this theory-based education with virtual laboratory experiences.
