Report on Training Course Entitled "In-Vitro Simulation of DNA Replication"

Home / Faculty of Pharmacy - News

 The organization of the first group of the training course "In-Vitro Simulation of DNA Replication" was completed. This session was attended by 43 students from the third year students who attended the previous session "Basics of Molecular Biology"
This session supplement what has been studying the basics of molecular biology and the different ways to extract genetic material, thus, this session include to identify some of the genes and methods of separation and its complications through the genetic material which was previously isolated

In this course the student can identify and isolate specific study it and its complications for the production of bio-compounds such as proteins, enzymes and vaccines and insulin genes

Duration: 6 credit hours

Course Date: Wednesday, 02/11/2016

The session included on the theoretical and practical sides:


·        Explanation of Fundamentals and applications of PCR

·        Explanation of Gene installation
