Summer Institute is a weeklong Biotechnology and Science Institute offered by
the UNH College of Arts & Sciences. Participants in the program experience
the excitement of working with Biotechnology, genetic engineering and science
projects in a University Environment.
faculty and staff lead a variety of activities, from analyzing DNA and
transforming bacteria to performing PCR, and Gel Electrophoresis. Participants
will have an opportunity to learn about careers in biotechnology through these
hands-on activities while getting a taste of college life.
faculty and staff supervise all classroom and project work. They have out-
standing backgrounds in many different areas of biotechnology, biology, and
science, combined with a genuine interest in working with young people who show
an aptitude for science, math, engineering, and technology.
What are viruses? How do we fight them?
viruses this summer with hands on laboratory experiences and research
- Learning and practicing techniques real researchers use in
- DNA Extraction
- Gel Electrophoresis
- Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR)
- Transforming a bacterium with engineered DNA
Summer Institute Participants will have the opportunity to sample their own
DNA! With this they will move on to recognize and fight an emerging epidemic in
our society. Students will model vaccine development cutting and comparing
viral DNA samples looking for the new epidemic variations. They will then use
PCR bacterial transformation to model emerging vaccine production techniques.
will work together to explore epidemiology techniques, understand how epidemics
turn into pandemics and come up with plans to contain the epidemic and
distribute the new vaccine.
course will teach techniques that will look impressive on a college
application, supplement an AP Bio course, and give participants a chance to
work like real scientists.
