Introduction
The Center of Excellence in Genomic Medicine Research (CEGMR) at king Abdul Aziz University is pleased to announce the first international workshop on 'applications of PCR in diagnostic molecular genetics'. 

The Center of Excellence in Genomic Medicine Research (CEGMR) at king Abdul Aziz University is pleased to announce the first international workshop on 'applications of PCR in diagnostic molecular genetics'. 

CEGMR is an established platform that provides cutting edge research and professional education. CEGMR strives to provide training courses, workshops, and conferences of great scientific importance to give an opportunity to scientists interested in this field.

Objectives
Molecular genetics has many applications in diagnostics and its considered and integral part of many diagnostic laboratories worldwide. This workshop will provide an opportunity for participants to learn basic techniques related to DNA and RNA and their applications in molecular diagnostics. The participants will enjoy experimentation involving nucleotide extraction all the way through to PCRs and RT-PCRs. Most methods will revolve around gel electrophoresis and usage of gel documentation system.

Dates, Location & Duration
The course will be held in the laboratories of the CEGMR, King Fahd Medical Research Center based at King Abdul Aziz University. Lectures and practical sessions will be held daily from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.


Documents and Certificates

Participants who successfully complete the theoretical and practical parts will be awarded a certificate of completion 


Fees and Registration
2000 SR will be charged. Fees will include break refreshments, lunch, all workshop materials and documentation. Registration is on the basis of first come first serve, therefore early registration is highly recommended.
For more details, kindly refer to: Terms and Conditions
