TY Students attend DNA Workshop in UCC
The TY Biology classes were invited to a DNA Workshop in UCC on Thursday last 3rd October. The day began with a lecture on DNA & the genetic disease Sickle cell anaemia. The level of the material was high and it stretches the more well able students while Dr Sinead Kerin's style & delivery brings everyone along in an interactive and application filled morning.
The rest of the day was in the Biochemistry Laboratories working on DNA from plants & humans. The use of electrophoresis to find the Sickle cell anaemia genes & the use of techniques on the Leaving Cert Biology course as theory was wonderful.
This is a day that awakens a passion for science & the insight to what college life will be like.
