TSU will teach researchers to create new biosystems
TSU has begun the new cross-disciplinary educational module Molecular Biotechnology, organized by the TSU Biological Institute (Department of Cytology and Genetics) and the StrAU Smart Materials and Technologies Institute. In this module, students, graduate students, and scientists will gain in-depth knowledge in biotechnology and synthetic biology. Lectures are given by leading scientists from Moscow State University, Novosibirsk State University (NSU), and Research Center Kurchatov Institute.
The module will include 4 cycles of lectures by leading Russian scientists in bioengineering and synthetic biology from MSU, NSU, and the Kurchatov Institute on the latest advances in molecular biology and genetic engineering, including molecular cloning, evaluation of gene expression, and cell transformation. In addition to theoretical training, “Big Workshop on Bioengineering” and “Workshop on Synthetic Biology”, which are necessary to obtain practical skills in these areas, will be held. The laboratories of the Department of Cytology and Genetics of Biological Institute will be the site of the workshops.
