Receive free DNA laboratory and data analysis training at the Marshall University Forensic Science Center in Huntington, WV. The week-long training session will be taught by our qualified DNA trainer utilizing lecture presentations, hands-on laboratory activities, and data analysis as described in the course Agenda. Individuals should have a basic knowledge of DNA applications for forensic testing; however, a minimum experience level is not required.
Laboratories interested in high-throughput testing, automated methods, or the latest forensic DNA instrumentation will benefit from the training modules provided in this session. Covering each stage of forensic DNA testing, the Advanced DNA Training module emphasizes instrument and software manipulation.
Demonstrations of new products, methods and machinery will also be performed and can vary depending on the interest of the training group. The MUFSC can also customize trainings to meet the specific needs of laboratories; including various robotics and liquid handlers which can be made available for specialized training exercises.
