What is the ambitious goal of this project?
Learn some of the molecular cloning and protein purification techniques that are essential steps to constructing new vaccines. In addition, students will learn “reverse vaccinology” methods to identify top priority vaccine candidates using bioinformatics.
Students will learn basic molecular techniques and in silico antigen discovery while also helping to move forward current and ongoing research projects on the development of Staphylococcus aureus vaccines.
Methodologies/skills used to achieve project goals:
- Molecular cloning
- Protein purification techniques
Majors and Interests Needed
Any/All majors welcome
