Cell Culture Workshop

1-Week Hands-on Workshop on Human/Cancer Cell Culture Techniques & MTT Assay, Pune, India

Venue: ICSCCB, R.H. 2, Ujwal Regalia, Near Prabhavee Tech Park, Baner Road, Pune – 411045, India

We have planned a series of 7-Days workshops with practical hands-on training on the following techniques using human embryonic kidney cell line and human blood cancer cell lines:

  • Basic human/cancer cell culture techniques, passaging and maintenance of cell lines
  • Media preparation
  • Cryopreservation (freezing and thawing of cell lines)
  • Genomic DNA isolation from cancer cell lines,
  • DNA estimation
  • DNA agarose gel electrophoresis
  • Total RNA extraction
  • cDNA synthesis from RNA (Reverse Transcription),
  • Polymerase Chain Reaction from cDNA (Reverse Transcription-PCR)
  • Agarose gel electrophoresis of PCR product
  • Total protein extraction
  • Protein estimation
  • SDS-PAGE electrophoresis of extracted proteins
  • Coomassie staining of protein gel
  • MTT Assay for cell proliferation/cytotoxicity

This is a basic workshop intended for beginners to teach and train them in animal cell culture and molecular techniques using the human/cancer cell lines for various experiments. It will be supported by some lectures on basic cell culture techniques, media preparation, gene/protein expression & interaction networks in hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) and cancer cells.
