Event description
Ever wanted to be a “DNA detective”?

About this Event

Here’s your chance, working alongside molecular geneticist Dr Sandy Richardson and bioinformatician Dr Adam Ewing. Our DNA holds an incredible amount of information that can be used for everything from solving crimes to treating disease. However, it is so small that researchers must use special tools to unlock its secrets. As an Apprentice, you’ll learn about the different approaches used to study DNA sequences. Then, you’ll do a hands-on experiment using enzymatic digestion and gel electrophoresis to analyse and identify a piece of “mystery DNA”.

The Apprentice programs are small, hands-on workshops in which scientists, technologists and innovators educate curious minds on the workings and wonders of their chosen fields brought to you in conjunction with the 2020 World Science Festival.
