Proteomics - Using Western Blotting to Profile Proteins, event is taking place on Monday 13th March 2017
This is the schedual for the day
9.30am-10am Arrival at Liverpool Hope. The event will begin promptly at 10am
10am – 11.50am Western blotting is used extensively in research to determine the presence of specific proteins, to quantify their expression levels, and to determine whether they have undergone genetic or posttranslational modifications. Students make predictions about their results in prelab activities using Internet databases and published phylogenetic information. They then employ protein electrophoresis, the most widely used technique in life science research, to study protein structure and function, generating protein profiles from the muscles of both distantly and closely related species of fish. From their results, they compare the different species' profiles, construct cladograms (phylogenetic trees), and assign each organism a branch. Students can decide whether their results support their predictions.
11.50am – 12pm Plenary
12pm Depart Hope

We offer a wide variety of student recruitment activities, events and workshops that cater for young people from year 7 to year 13 to support them in considering university as a pathway to their future.

Working with schools across the UK and beyond, we aim to develop school-university partnerships to support the recruitment and attainment of learners at Liverpool Hope by supporting students on their journey to university.

We run practical sessions covering topics such as:

- UCAS and Personal Statements
- Student Finance
- Time Management
- Budgeting
- Why Go to University
- Personal and Life Skills
- Study Skills
- Subject Tasters

The team can deliver our interactive presentations and workshops at your school/college or, alternatively, students can be brought to one of our beautiful campuses to experience what it is like to be a student.

Our Student Recruitment team with students, teachers and careers advisers deliver impartial information, advice and guidance showcasing the benefits of university.

Our aim is to inspire young minds, increase engagement of learners in our local and wider community and to increase access to higher education for all.
