Thanks to everybody who came out to the AMBL Science Field Trip! We hope you enjoyed the lessons on genetics, the AMBL Jeopardy (and it’s live music), and hope that you will continue to support the club in the future! Here are some photos from the field trip – please enjoy them!
The Advanced Molecular Biology Laboratory (AMBL) will be holding a special one-day Science Field Trip FREE for UBC iGEM members! You will be performing DNA fingerprinting analysis – commonly used by forensic scientists and CSI – to check for genetic elements in your own DNA. Using the powerful PCR technique, you will be isolating and amplifying your DNA then analyzing it for the Alu genetic element. This field trip promises to a fun and entertaining way to get into contemporary molecular biology! Where: Advanced Molecular Continue reading →
There will be no Journal Club this term. Special thanks to those who presented and participated this year!
We are hosting a movie night, featuring GATTACA, to wrap things up for this term. It is will this Wednesday (April 7) from 5-7 in MSL 101. This is a good way to hang out, relax, and not think about project selection (although we will still be thinking about bioethics!) before finals are here. Popcorn will be provided!
This week, Rafael Saer will be presenting a paper titled “Wiring photosystem I for direct solar hydrogen production” from Biochemistry. 2010 Jan 26;49(3):404-14. (PMID: 19947649) If anyone wants to read the paper beforehand and has trouble getting a hold of it, please send Eric Finlay (enfinlay at gmail.com) a message with your e-mail address so he can forward it to you.
