filming educational videosGENIE, in collaboration with the University's Audio Visual Services are producing high quality educational videos based on standard molecular laboratory techniques. Available training videos so far include Using a Micropipette and Making and Running an Agarose Gel.
GENIE is developing a series of short educational videos covering common molecular biology laboratory techniques.  The production of these is in collaboration with the University of Leicester Audiovisual Services Unit.  Two videos have been produced so far covering pipetting and gel electrophoresis.  The videos are aimed at undergraduate and postgraduate students and can be viewed on DVD or as streaming media on Blackboard. The pipetting video won two awards at the 2007 HeSCA Meeting in Toronto and the agarose gel video won a Gold award at the 2008 HeSCA Meeting in New Haven, Connecticut. Both of the finished videos can be viewed on the Virtual Genetics Education Centre website.
If you wish to download the videos, please visit the Virtual Genetics Education Centre.
