Teachers’ CPD: Cutting-edge Biology – Genetics & Genomics

9am – 3.30pm (talks start 9.30am), 25th June 2019

University of South Wales, Glyntaff Campus, Pontypridd CF37 4BD

Join Wales Gene Park, Techniquest and the University of South Wales to learn more about the latest advances in the fast-moving field of genetics and genomics. Bring cutting-edge biology into your secondary classroom with expert talks and an interactive session.

We are running a one-day Genetics & Genomics CPD workshop for teachers, funded by STEM Learning. The day will include a series of talks from expert speakers on subjects relevant to the WJEC AS/A-level biology curriculum (topics include The 100,000 Genomes Project, epigenetics, pathogen genomics, DNA fingerprinting and more), followed by a hands-on session on DNA fingerprinting. There will also be a tour of the facilities including a visit to the Crime Scene House and a chance to hear about some of the opportunities the University of South Wales can offer prospective students!

Funding: this course is subsidised by STEM LEARNING Ltd. There is NO COST and teachers will be eligible for a £165 ENTHUSE bursary. To apply go to: https://www.stem.org.uk/cpd/452729/cutting-edge-biology-genetics-and-genomics
