Molecular Biology Lab

This lab is equipped with advanced equipment such as a PCR machine, gel electrophoresis machine and ELISA reader. This teaching lab performs a broad range of experiments including DNA and RNA extraction, running both agarose and polyacrylamide gels. Gene identification and extraction. In addition, some forensics techniques such as microsatellites and variable number tandem repeat. The blend between research and diagnostic techniques provided to our students enlighten them with a wider perspective and horizon between different fields.
