Molecular Biology Techniques Course

General Information

Do you need basic Molecular Biology skills?

We are now seeking enquiries and expressions of interest for our next Molecular Biology Techniques course that will provide comprehensive training in the fundamental and essential skills.

Highly regarded throughout the industry and by former participants, this outstanding and established course has attracted applicants from diverse backgrounds in private, government, scientific, clinical, educational and commercial organisations. It is an extremely intensive and demanding week-long course, designed to teach the basic skills to participants from all scientific disciplines who have had little or no previous experience in molecular biology. It is also an ideal workshop for those who would like to consolidate their current, basic skill level. Entry requirements include a tertiary level qualification in science, medicine or related discipline and/or extensive practical laboratory experience.

The course consists of approximately 10 hours of theory (9 lectures) provided by a group of experienced lecturers who are all active researchers, experts in their relevant fields and are widely published. The lectures and specialist tutorials will be held in the new multi-award winning Learning and Teaching Building.

The practical training involves more than 30 hours of experimental laboratory work and daily group tutorials. This is provided by graduate instructors who routinely use the applications and procedures in an active research environment. The key feature of the workshop is our tutor to participant ratio which is one to four for all workshop sessions and tutorials. In addition, specialist technical tutorials are provided in sequencing data analysis and Real-time PCR. The workshop component of the course will be held in the new Biomedical Learning and Teaching Building which was opened in February 2019. This building is currently recognised as the best Biomedical teaching facility in the world and contains a specially-designed PC2 teaching laboratory where we will conduct this workshop.

A comprehensive manual with all lecture slides, protocols, procedures and references is provided, together with a DVD containing all lecture presentations and satchel.

The course package includes morning and afternoon teas, and delicious lunches. Course awards and certificates of attendance presentations are made at the extended Friday lunch. There is an extensive range of demonstration equipment for use plus the relevant product information supplied by our commercial, scientific sponsors. Information on reasonably priced, university-based or private commercial accommodation can be provided on request. This package offers an excellent value for money opportunity as has been affirmed by the hundreds of satisfied participants who have completed this course over the many years in which it has been run.
