A Level Biologists Work With Researchers At QUB School Of Biological Sciences

On Monday 24th October Year 14 Biologists travelled to QUB School of Biological Sciences to carry out DNA gel electrophoresis. Twenty eight students seized the opportunity to learn from leading researchers in the fields of Genetics and Biotechnology.

Students were first given a tour of the new QUB building and labs, which for many was an excellent insight into potential university life next year, before being taken to a state-of-the-art laboratory where Dr Colin McClure took the boys through the series of steps needed to separate and identify particular fragments of bacteriophage RNA.

The students obtained excellent results which can be submitted as part of their A level practical portfolio.
