J. Craig Venter Institute's Mobile Genomics Lab Launches First School Visits in San Diego County
Date:5/14/2013

LA JOLLA, Calif., May 14, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The J. Craig Venter Institute (JCVI) announced today the launch of their mobile genomics laboratory program in the San Diego, California area.  The DiscoverGenomics! Mobile Laboratory is a self-sufficient laboratory on wheels providing middle school students and teachers an opportunity to learn current bioscience concepts and to master the use of the cutting-edge laboratory equipment found in life science research facilities.

Beginning today the "lab on wheels" will be visiting five middle schools including:

Mar Vista Middle School, Sweetwater School District in Imperial Beach; Rincon Middle School, Escondido; Los Coches Creek Middle School, Cajon Valley School District in El Cajon; Mann Middle School, San Diego; Wilson Middle School , San Diego. It is expected that approximately 1400 students will participate in the hands-on experiments. Kids and their teachers will learn how to use laboratory equipment through exciting lab lesson plans such as, how to measure protein content in popular protein drinks, studying the effects of pharmaceuticals on various microoganisms, diagnosing patients with a genetic disease and determining the amount of phosphorus in an environmental sample.

The modified motor coach, outfitted with advanced laboratory equipment and all necessary utilities to conduct actual research, accommodates up to 32 students, their teacher, and two mobile lab instructors. The workstations feature necessary equipment such as pipettes, electrophoresis supplies, centrifuges and reagents.  JCVI received a private donation to provide stipends to each of the participating teachers, along with a generous gift from the Venter Family Foundation.  '/>"/>
