Application Due Date: Monday, 18 th February 2019
JR Biotek Structure (JRBF) is partnering with the Lab of Genes, Gardening and Seed Science at the University of Abomey-Calavi, Benin Republic to hold a one-week extensive Molecular Biology Training and Open Labware Structure Workshop for Africa-based farming scientists, academics and postgraduate trainees.
The workshop becomes part of JR Biotek Structure’s brand-new effort called ‘Reach & Teach Science in Africa’, which was established with assistance from the University of Cambridge to reinforce research study and development in African nations, specifically sub-Saharan Africa. It includes mobilising scientists from the University of Cambridge and other UK universities to teach, coach and offer suitable training/educational resources to advance research study and mentor of used biosciences in Africa.
The style for the workshop to be held at the University of Abomey-Calavi, Benin Republic from 1st-5th April 2019 is ‘ Training African farming scientists to resolve food and nutrition insecurity through research study and development’ It intends to gear up 100 farming scientists, speakers and postgraduate trainees from universities and nationwide research study institutes in sub-Saharan Africa with understanding and hands-on experience in core molecular biology concepts, lab strategies and applications in farming research study with specific interest in crop breeding. The Workshop will be taught by research study specialists from the University of Cambridge and other universities worldwide.
The Molecular Biology Training & Open Labware Structure Workshop is.
a detailed training program developed to gear up 100 farming.
scientists, speakers and postgraduate trainees from universities and.
nationwide research study institutes in sub-Saharan Africa with understanding and.
hands-on experience in core molecular biology concepts, lab.
strategies and applications in farming research study, with interest in.
crop breeding. It will consist of the following:
1. Lectures and Wet Laboratory Practical: Lectures will.
cover a broad series of subjects in molecular biology and biotechnology. It.
will likewise consist of a course on data and information analysis and a damp.
lab useful session to show how molecular biology can be.
used to determine and study plant genes that have importance to food.
and nutrition security. Laboratory strategies to be found out consist of DNA.
extraction from plant tissues, gene amplification by the Polymerase.
Domino Effect (PCR) method, gel electrophoresis, and so on
2. Specialist Advancement Training: This session.
will concentrate on offering abilities for clinical and grant proposition.
composing, conference engagement and how to make and provide exceptional.
clinical discussions. It will be taught by a scientist from the.
University of Cambridge.
3. ‘Bio-innovation for Africa’ Difficulty: This.
effort was developed by JR Biotek Structure to motivate African.
researchers to end up being more proactive in discovering options to a few of the.
most important obstacles dealt with on the continent. With 2 effective.
occasions held at the University of Cambridge in the last 2 years, we are.
thrilled to host this obstacle in Africa in April. The session will.
include round-table conversation sessions where the workshop individuals.
will work together to determine and propose options to particular issues.
dealt with in their nations. Each group will have the chance to.
present their concepts and options, and the winning group will be.
advised for additional assistance, which might consist of mentoring.
4. Open Labware Structure Workshop: In this 2-day hands-on develop a microscopic lense session, individuals will operate in groups to develop basic microscopic lens, which they will utilize to imagine the expression of a Green Fluorescent Protein (GFP) in plant cell-free extracts.
Applications are motivated from postgraduate trainees (PhD trainees generally), speakers and investigates associated with farming research study at an African university.
There is no cost to take part in the workshop, nevertheless, chosen.
prospects will require to spend for their travel (return) to Benin Republic.
Meals (breakfast and lunch) will be offered.
- Strong intellectual capability and importance of present research study to the training course.
- Shown requirement to obtain brand-new clinical understanding and abilities to enhance their research study and mentor.
- Associated with mentor or training others at an African university (this is optional for PhD trainees).
- English efficiency
