NUCLEIC ACID TECHNIQUES FOR THE ANALYSIS OF FISH PATHOGENS:=20
DETECTION, CHARACTERISATION AND EVOLUTION
August 7th - August 17th, 1994
Department of Microbiology, University College Galway, Ireland
This intensive practical course is designed to provide a training in =
use of nucleic acid techniques for the analysis of bacterial and vira=
pathogens of fish. It is aimed at scientists wishing to expand their =
to include this area or younger scientists entering this field. No di=
experience is required. This course is sponsored in part by the Europ=
Commission (AIR Programme), University College Galway and BioResearch=
This is a residential course, without exception, and there is a char=
IR=A3550 towards board and lodging.
The course will cover the following techniques.
Nucleic acids isolation, Southern/Northern blotting,=20
Gene cloning, DNA sequencing,=20
Polymerase Chain Reaction,=20
Reverse Transcriptase-PCR, DNA probes,
16S ribosomal RNA Sequencing and Analysis,
Ribotyping, in situ hybridisation,
Random Amplification of Polymorphic DNA,=20
