Integrate genetics and neurobiology while infusing your chemotaxis lab with inquiry. Use C. elegans to compare normal and mutant behavior in a classical conditioned learning experiment (think Pavlov’s worms). Explore worm taste preferences in a simple chemotaxis assay, and examine the connection of our worm mutant to human diseases.
The first 30 US-based registrants will receive one student workstation from the C. Elegans Behavior kit so they can perform the lab during the workshop. No equipment is needed - just easily accessible household items! If you are among the first 30 to sign up, you'll receive a form about 2 weeks before the event to input your shipping information.
This webinar will be presented by Leigh Brown. Leigh has a background in virology research and was a former biology teacher. In her role at Bio-Rad, she helps teachers implement biotech labs into their courses through hands-on training and personalized curriculum support.
Note: No continuing education credits or certificates are being offered for attending this event. Attendees will receive an email after the event that they may use as proof of attendance. This webinar will be recorded and emailed to all registrants.
