Course Details

Molecular stem cell biology is a 5-day hands on program that imparts modern real-world techniques for cloning genes using In-Fusion cloning technology. Guided by professional molecular biologists, participants design and implement a cloning strategy, creating a fluorescent fusion protein which they express in human cancer stem cells.

This one-of-a-kind program teaches sophisticated practical techniques that are not offered in any college or school setting. The program curriculum is ideally suited to students with a keen interest in molecular cell biology or genetic engineering.


Each day of the course follows the technical process of:

1. Utilizing bioinformatical software to design a gene amplification and cloning strategy
2. Cloning a gene from human stem cells using modern ligation independent isothermal assembly techniques
3. Engineering the cloned gene to create a fluorescent fusion protein
4. Introducing the cloned florescent fusion protein construct into human stem cells
5. Using microscopy to evaluate and observe the cloned fluorescent protein construct
6. Exploring the real-world applications of gene cloning and protein engineering in stem cell science
