The aim of the course is to provide Vietnamese students and young scientists a hand on experience in Molecular Biology techniques. Participants will have an opportunity to practice and design their own research, and discuss their results with the faculty members from the University of Tsukuba.

  • Time: January 19, 2015 ~ January 24, 2015
  • Place: Institute of Tropical Biology
    9/621 Ha Noi Highway, Linh Trung Ward, Thu Duc District, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

  • Application Deadline: December 1, 2014
  • Contents:
    Influenza is a common infectious disease in the world. In recent years, highly virulent avian influenza virus ran riot in South East Asia. In this molecular biology course, students will determine the subtypes of influenza virus by immuno-chromatography and PCR methods. Students will examine the response of influenza virus-infected cells and analyze the medicinal effects of anti-influenza agents by RNA extraction, reverse transcription and quantitative PCR.
    Students will work as a group in designing the experiments and analyzing the results.
    Finally, each group will prepare a Power Point slides and present their results for discussion.
Applicants are required to submit a complete application form electronically to University of Tsukuba - Ho Chi Minh City Office (ut.vietnam@un.tsukuba.ac.jp)
