WELLCOME GENOME CAMPUS, HINXTON, UK
This laboratory-based course will give participants a working knowledge of, and practical experience in, cutting edge Plasmodium experimental genetics techniques, from designing gene targeting vectors and creating transgenic parasites to phenotyping the strains produced.
The programme strategy will be to follow a Plasmodium experimental genetics experiment from conception to completion, equipping attendees to design and carry out their own projects in the future.
- Topics covered will include:
- Gene targeting vector construction
- Transfection and genotyping
- Molecular phenotyping
Limited bursaries are available (up to 50% of the course fee) and are awarded on merit. Please see the Wellcome website for full details:
