Hands-on Genetic Engineering in the Novartis Bioscience school lab in Basel

Luckily, being located in Basel (historically the world Pharma-capital) Gymnasium am Münsterplatz has numerous opportunities for collaboration & student placements on our doorstep. When studying Genetics & Biotechnology at school we spend a whole day performing biotech experiments at the Novartis Schullabor, just the other side of The Rhine. Our students experience working with genetically modified E.coli; advanced techniques to capture & purify DNA; identification of DNA origin by restriction analysis; and then separation & visualization of DNA fragments by gel electrophoresis (“DNA fingerprinting”). In an alternative practical, students extract their own genomic DNA, amplify by PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) and process it, performing SNP (single nucleotide polymorphisms)-Genotyping on a taste receptor.
