Scientific Research Center of Erbil Polytechnic University Will Open A Four Day Training Course

“Basic Molecular Biology techniques: From DNA extraction to PCR application” is a four-day training course that will enable participants to learn the basic molecular techniques required for scientific research to be effective. Participants will experience hands-on training on genomic DNA extraction, electrophoresis, and Polymerase Chain Reaction amplification. Dr. Nizar Ali Amin Shwan, the lecturer at  Disease Analysis Department/Erbil Technical Health College, will deliver this training course at the Scientific Research Center, Erbil Technology College Camp. It will start on the 20th of September, 2021, from 09:00 AM to 04:00 PM daily. For registration, please visit this link.
