Engineering Biology through Molecular Microbial Ecology 2017

Newcastle University is a world leader in Engineering Biology through Microbial Ecology. The purpose of this course is to get the latest generation of tools in molecular microbial ecology into the hands of engineers. Molecular microbial ecology has the power to revolutionise our ability to monitor and design engineered biological systems e.g. wastewater treatment plants. Moreover the costs of the associated sequencing technology are dropping exponentially. This course will give delegates an understanding of how the tools work, their advantages and disadvantages and, crucially, how they can be used in design and monitoring. The delegates will get hands on experience with classical molecular methods such as fluorescent in situ hybridisation (FISH), quantitative PCR (QPCR) and denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (DGGE), and next generation sequencing technologies (454 sequencing) including crucial data de-noising and analysis.
