Protein is Ca$h workshops were developed by NBC2 to introduce the concepts of biotechnology to high school educators in a hands-on setting, and to provide information about biotechnology and biomanufacturing career pathways.
During the workshop, educators are introduced to the concepts of biotechnology and biomanufacturing by conducting a series of experiments on the expression, purification and analysis of Green Fluorescent Protein (GFP). Lab activities include bacterial transformation, purification by column chromatography and SDS-PAGE analysis of GFP. Instructional materials for the workshop include a laboratory manual and Powerpoint presentations for the lab activities, and information about the specific kits used in the workshop.
Below is a collection of materials that educators can use to help them incorporate hands-on biotechnology laboratories into their existing curriculum.
