Summer internship at the Genetic laboratory

In July, Miheala Šimunić, a student of Molecular Biology at the Faculty of Science in Zagreb, and Hrvoje Korovljević, a student of Biology at the Josip Juraj Strossmayer University in Osijek, did a student internship.

Over the two weeks, students learned the basics of using laboratory equipment (handling an analytical scale, mill, pipettes, vortex, digester), performed several PCR analyses, learned how electrophoresis works and read the results.

In addition, as part of the NATURALLY project (IP-2020-02-6899), they made microscopic preparations of the glands of the pajasen (A. altissima), which were then stained with basic colors and observed with an Axioscope 5 fluorescent microscope.
