BTEC 25 Analytical PCR Technology (1)
Credit, Degree Applicable
A course in the theory and practice of current polymerase chain reaction (PCR) analytical methods. Students will gain laboratory experience in performing techniques such as multiplex PCR, reverse transcriptase PCR (RT-PCR), and real-time PCR. Experimental optimization will be emphasized.
After successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
- Outcome 1: Describe the underlying theory of advanced PCR methods such as reverse-transcription PCR and real-time PCR.
- Outcome 2: Set up and perform an advanced PCR reaction such as real time PCR
- Outcome 3: Interpret and analyze PCR results using evidence and reasoning to support a conclusion.
- Outcome 4: Apply knowledge of real-time PCR to answer biological questions.
