The Center for Research and Education in Bioluminescence and Biotechnology Presents:

Protein Purification: Isolation, Analysis, and Characterization of GFP ,
A Five and One-Half Day Hands-On Laboratory Course Using the remarkable Green-Fluorescent Protein (GFP), A Novel Marker For
Gene Expression, as the source material;

January 11-16, 2004
March 14-19, 2004
Summer 2004 TBA

In it's 15 years of operation, more than 1100 scientists from around the world have strongly recommended this intensive course as
an opportunity to develop protein research and analytical skills in a retreat setting. Participants work hard, identify and solve problems in the lab and enjoy camaraderie and good food and beer with colleagues. An added bonus of this course is practical laboratory exposure to GFP, now a staple of life sciences laboratories everywhere.


This five and one-half day laboratory course covers a wide variety of conventional methods for protein isolation, purification, and characterization. The course format integrates hands-on laboratory exercises with classroom lectures, demonstrations, study breaks, and short take-home assignments.

A special feature of the course is that all laboratory work will be performed on the same starting sample (native or recombinant Aequorea GFP), which will be purified from an exceedingly crude form to near homogeneity as judged by high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), SDS gel electrophoresis, isoelectric focusing, and capillary zone electrophoresis. This feature provides a continuity of purpose, integrating dozens of preparative and analytical protein techniques in a way that few competing courses can match.


A problem-solving approach will be used throughout the course. Under the guidance of experienced lab instructors, participants will work in groups to plan their own protocols, analyze data, and interpret results. A student-teacher ratio not greater than 8:1 will be maintained and the faculty coordinators will be present throughout the course.

We offer very substantial academic tuition discounts!

where is it? how much does it cost? what level of work is it (i.e. for generally intelligent students? - don't mean that to be harsh).

(Original post by onlywee)
where is it? how much does it cost? what level of work is it (i.e. for generally intelligent students? - don't mean that to be harsh).

The course is given at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey, USA. The academic tuition rate is $1295.00 US, a 52% discount from the regular tuition rate of $2495.00. We've had many different levels of experienced (and inexperienced) attendees, however most come from a backround in either pharmaceutical/biotech companies or graduate/post graduate academia. I would recommend that you be generally intelligent if you wish to attend this course, there's a lot of material both in hand's-on lab exercises and informative lectures. We always have a ton of fun though! Please consult our website for a full itinerary of the 5 1/2 day course, and contact us directly if you should have further questions. It's an awesome course, and we're located about 45min from NYC.
