Why SCI? Find out this summer at Hudson Valley Community College!

Hudson Valley Community College is offering a hands-on workshop for high school science teachers this summer. Get a jump on next year's curriculum, share best practices with other teachers, earn professional development credits and be able to bring lab experiences in biotechnology and biomanufacturing to your students.

Space is limited, register today!

Biotechnology Workshop
A free workshop for AP Biology, Advanced/Second Year/Honors/IB Biology and Forensics Teachers
Tuesday, Aug. 15 - Wednesday, Aug. 16, 2017
10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Science Center, Room 222

Bacterial Transformation
Using Green Fluorescent Protein (GFP) to transform bacteria, participants will observe gene expression in real time and then purify it using simple chromatography. Genetic transformation is used in agriculture, environmental bioremediation, as well as gene therapy in medicine.

Participants will use ELISA (which stands for enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay), a powerful antibody-based test used to diagnose diseases, track pathogenic agents, identify genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and trace food allergens and molecular markers of pregnancy and drug use. It has revolutionized medicine, biotechnology and research.
