DNA Barcoding Teacher Workshop
September 15, 2018 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm$35
DNA barcoding is a powerful technique that is used to identify an unknown species using a short DNA sequence. This workshop will integrate DNA barcoding into a lesson designed to teach biodiversity.
Participants will learn exactly what DNA barcoding is, survey an area for plant biodiversity, collect plant samples for our LifeScanner kits, and demonstrate a simplified DNA isolation from strawberries using only household items. Each teacher that attends the workshop will receive a LifeScanner kit to use in their classroom.
Registration fees do not include parking. Registration does include lunch.
Registration fee: $35
Registration deadline: August 30
