Molecular Biology Experience for Undergraduates (MOBEX) program is designed to provide a one-day intensive experience in molecular biology for life science students. Most undergraduates complete their degree programs with little or no hands-on experience with modern molecular biology. This one-day program provides some experience to round up their education. It is designed for undergraduates only.

AIMS OF MOBEX

  • Provide a rich one-day experience in molecular biology for undergraduates along with incorporating molecular biotechniques into student research projects.

  • To stimulate undergraduates towards future careers and economic opportunities in the life science industry

Curriculum/Techniques

  • DNA Extraction

  • Standard PCR Amplification

  • Horizontal Gel Electrophoresis

  • Rudiments of Bioinformatics

  • Incorporation of Molecular Biotechniques into research project

Students must have taken one course in general biochemistry or molecular biology that includes some chemistry of nucleic acids. Working in pairs, students will perform some hands-on exercises in molecular biology techniques.

Pricing

The program is designed for bulk pricing; therefore, a minimum number of students are required to sign up to hold the 1-day program. Departments are encouraged to partner together to be able to get sufficient number of students.
