Essex Synthetic Biology School 2-6 July, 2018 - University of Essex, UK

Program

Lab sessions

During lab sessions, you will learn yeast Golden Gate, an efficient method to assemble transcription units in yeast. You can start reading more about it from: Yeast Golden Gate (yGG) for the Efficient Assembly of S. cerevisiae Transcription Units

Protocols will be provided ahead of School.
