Educational Webinar: High-Resolution Melt Analysis

 :: Posted by American Biotechnologist on 08-02-2010

High-resolution melt (HRM) analysis is rapidly gaining in popularity as a cost-effective and faster alternative to traditional post-PCR genotyping methods such as single-stranded conformation polymorphism, denaturing high-performance liquid chromatography, and restriction fragment length polymorphism.

In this webinar you will gain an overview of the fundamentals of HRM and learn techniques for success through appropriate experimental design, assay optimization, and data analysis. You will also learn about specific applications from scientists using HRM technology for basic microbiological genotyping research of pathogens as well as in clinical studies, detecting receptor gene mutants linked to cancer and identifying epigenetic differences in double-stranded DNA.

The webinar will take place Wednesday August 11 at 1pm EST.

Enzymes are critical to life and are central in any life science curriculum. Enzymes spiral throughout life science curriculum and provide many opportunities to incorporate best teaching practices, but how excited and engaged are your students? As a case study for enzymes and factors that affect enzymatic reactions, biofuel production is a hot topic that connects many big ideas in both biology and environmental science. Looking at enzymes through this light allows us to explore enzyme activity as well as hands-on labs for teaching enzymes. This webinar will consider why it’s important to teach enzymes including enzyme function, regulation and industrial applications and will share tips on engaging students that have proven successful in the classroom.

Webinar Agenda
Why teach about enzymes
Enzymes overview: function, regulation and STEM applications
Biofuels as a case study for real-world applications of enzymes
Hands-on labs for teaching
