Within this master I’m doing the Biodiversity and Sustainability specialization. I’m from India. My specialization in Molecular Genetics and Biotechnology. And I found out that Leiden University’s program is structured for someone like me who is keen to work in a lab, who is keen to work on research projects. The institute of Biology in
DNA is considered the molecule of life and is now easily identified as a double helix. However, figuring out its structure and how DNA works was not an easy task. And just a little over 60 years ago, it was still a complete mystery. Then in 1953 came Watson and Crick who discovered how the
This is an animal. This is also an animal. Animal. Animal. Animal carcass. Animal. Animal. Animal carcass again. Animal. The thing that all of these other things have in common is that they’re made out of the same basic building block: the animal cell. Animals are made up of your run-of-the-mill eukaryotic cells. These are
[MUSIC] [APPLAUSE] Thank you, thank you It was a great pleasure.
PROFESSOR: So, first step, we need to cut our DNA. Step one, cut, which is going to be DNA restriction enzymes. It turns out, quite remarkably, that if I have a sequence of DNA, five prime A G C T A G A A T T C T T A C C three prime, and
>>When I was interviewing, I was struck when I came to the NIH that a lot of the people I talked to, a lot of the investigators, were actually still working at the bench — so the only place I interviewed in the whole country where I would go into someone’s lab and they weren’t
Today, we’ll be talking about gel electrophoresis. What is gel electrophoresis, you might ask. Well, it’s a lab technique usually used in the biochemistry lab for separating out DNA or proteins based on their size. And let’s talk about how it works. So first, you need to have the gel. This can be made out
